NZCA Lines, the London-based project of Michael Lovett, is releasing their second album, Infinite Summer, on January 22, 2016 via Memphis Industries. Now they have shared the strange video for "Persephone Dreams." In it a man picks up a woman at a bar and takes her home, only for her reveal that she has a black hole in her belly, which he willingly enters. Alina Landry-Rancier directed the weird and wonderful clip, which you can watch below.

Landry-Rancier describes the video in a press release, saying it's "about how one can get lost within that lucid hopeful promise of a new love, and how we can get sucked in and disappear into the other lover's darkness. It is also about that lonely, empty feeling within one's chest and wanting to fill it with a love."

Previously NZCA Lines was more of a solo project, but for Infinite Summer Lovett is joined by two females, Charlotte Hatherly (Ash, Bat For Lashes) and Sarah Jones (Hot Chip). The album was recorded over the last two years with Charlie Alex March (Veronica Falls) as "studio co-conspirator" and was mixed by David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals). Lovett has also been in Metronomy's touring band for the last couple of years. Lovett says that album is influenced by his love of science fiction authors such as Arthur C. Clarke (2001: A Space Odyssey) and Philip K. Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep), explaining the album's concept in a press release: "The album is based around the idea of a far-future Earth, where the sun has expanded to the size of a red giant and our extinction is imminent. Half of the world is covered by a city [Cairo-Athens] that clings to the past and embraces its destruction, whilst the other half is trying to rebuild, create and make something new. Yet, it's good on both sides because it's warm everywhere and people just party most of the time."
