Battles 'The Yabba' by Roger Guàrdia
Battles, math-rock's greatest exponents, are back with The Yabba, and back with CANADA - this time as a production company, with Roger Guàrdia directing. And this is a very precise, almost geometric reflection of the track, slowly revealing its power and beauty, just as the song does.
Just like Ice Cream, their previous marvellous collaboration, The Yabba presents an orchestrated series of stylised vignettes. This time, the visuals are even more closely aligned to the music, growing in scale, as the track builds its momentum. The theme is rotation - everything, everyone spins around, endlessly.
But Battles are always there, performing. They remain firmly at the centre of everything. Wherever they are, they keep on playing.
