‘Last Song’ by avant-garde chamber ensemble Clogs is a delicate, fragile and beautiful piece of work. With Padma Newsome and Bryce Dessner from The National as members, fellow bandmate Matt Berninger was recruited to lend his distinctive baritone to this number.
The accompanying video by Benjamin and Stefan Ramírez Pérez reflects the song’s intimacy and sparseness. Benjamin and Stefan are twin brothers “studying film and animation at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany and the Vancouver School’s Digital Design program, respectively.” (view stereogum)
‘Last Song’ is the latest single from Clogs’ fifth LP, The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton.
