Auckland indie ensemble Mice On Stilts' recent album Hope For A Mourning was met with high praise from listeners and reviewers alike, with their haunting track 'The Hours' making the top 20 finalists for this year's APRA Silver Scroll Award.
Founded on ideas of darkness, empathy and catharsis, new single 'Orca' presents eerie vocal arrangements paired with ghostly jazz brass orchestration - Benjamin Morley’s other-worldly voice growing more harrowing as the song builds amongst a choral backdrop.
The accompanying video was compiled and edited by Adam Von Penfold from vintage online film footage, adding an element of nostalgia to the track.
The 'Orca' video is premiering exclusively now at www.undertheradar.co.nz.
