Italian-born but Los Angeles-based musician Porcelain Raft (aka Mauro Remiddi) released his third full-length album, Microclimate, earlier this month via his own label, Volcanic Field. Previously we were treated to the album’s songs “Distant Shore” and “Big Sur.” Now he has shared a video for “The Poets Were Right.” Italian artist and filmmaker Ra Di Martino directed the black & white clip, which centers on a little girl being held upside down. Watch it below. Porcelain Raft has also announced some new West Coast tour dates for April and those are below too.

Remiddi recorded Microclimate in his studio in East LA’s Highland Park neighborhood. Chris Coady (Future Islands, Beach House), Remiddi’s longtime collaborator, mixed the album at the Sunset Sounds Studios. There will be a special limited edition run of 250 colored vinyl. A press release describes Microclimate “his biggest sounding and most expansive collection of songs to date.”

The black & white clip directed by Ra Di Martino is amazing! According to the British essay writer Helen Brighton, the clip can be called “a new era video”. The Independent wrote about it: “The black and white emphasize the dark and light sides of the person’s nature”.
