The electronic ambient duo present a kaleidoscopic new video by artist David Packe

Continuing with their explorations into darkwave and folk inspired ambient sounds, Paper Dollhouse's Nina Bosnic and The Wire's Astrud Steehouder recorded their third LP The Sky Looks Different Here at London's New River Studios and Bosnic's studio in Suffolk, with Planet Mu's Asher Levitas producing. This video for the album track “Pearl's Theme” was made by artist David Packe, who has also helped with the visuals for the duo's new colourful, immersive live set-up.

Paper Dollhouse will support Carl Craig Synthesiser Ensemble at London's Barbican on 6 April and, further east, Tropic Of Cancer at Hackney’s Oslo club on 3 May.

The Sky Looks Different Here is released by their new MoonDome imprint via Kudos
