Calgary post-punk outfit Preoccupations have shared a video for “Compliance,” the epic instrumental closer of their 2018 album New Material. The black-and-white video was directed by Nicholas Brown and Evan Henderson, and follows a forest spirit named Mariah as she explores a post-apocalyptic universe.
“Mariah has awakened from eons of slumber to a world that has long been abandoned by humans and heavily mutated by their waste and consumption,” Preoccupations say of the video in a statement. “As Mariah struggles to make sense of this new world, she grieves for the one she has lost forever. The Mariah creature was painstakingly designed and constructed by Brown, portrayed by Henderson, and captured by the haunting and beautiful cinematography of Adam Stewart. ‘Compliance’ brings a close to this chapter of the band as we look towards the future and marvel at the new heights their music will take.”

Along with the video, Preoccupations have also announced a string of tour dates for this spring that cover much of southern and western Europe.
