Adreon Henry is one of those guys that is always active, always evolving. Henry was the creative force behind DJ project Car Stereo (Wars), performance art rap-punk group Custodian, and upbeat indie rock outfit Single Frame (Ashtray). He might be in love with parentheses, although Single Frame later dropped the (Ashtray). He is also a full time visual artist, showcasing his work in Austin, TX. He was featured on an episode of American Hipster that you can watch via YouTube below.
Now, Henry has poured his efforts into a new band called Videoing. The group will issue its debut album, Reader LP, on July 10th via Slack Electric. Preceding the release, Henry has teamed up with Jenn Bradley to create a series of videos, the first being for the album’s first single, “Night Watch,” also available below for viewing via YouTube.
The song itself sounds like a mash-up of one of the Pixies eerie, talky tracks, New Order, and Portishead as it wavers between ethereal and coarse, making use of dissonance and piercing guitar notes. We imagine it translates well live, if the band can pull of the delicate mix of layers. And we’ll have two opportunities to check it out this summer: a warm-up show on June 13th at the 29th Street Ballroom and then their record release show at the Mohawk on July 20th. You can also listen to “Night Watch” via Soundcloud below. Keep your eyars (that’s eyes and ears) open for more from Videoing.
