Land of Talk have unveiled the music video for “Quarry Hymns,” the second single from their recently released new album Cloak and Cipher (Saddle Creek).

Check out the new video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Q8KSJ_zyzk

Directed by Land of Talk regular Joseph Yarmush, the video was filmed at the Ukranian Federation in Montreal’s Mile End and produced by Petros Kolyvas. Using the theme of “Cloak and Cipher” as a springboard, the video evolved over the course of shooting much as the creation of the song itself, incorporating imagery from the songs lyrics which were penned brilliantly by Land of Talk’s Elizabeth Powell.

Praise for Cloak and Cipher:

“Coil-sprung riffs and soaring refrains” – The New York Times

“This Montreal band’s second full-length expands the abrasive post-hardcore and tender, tuneful poles of 2007’s Some Are Lakes” - SPIN

“On Cloak and Cipher, Powell’s voice smolders with newfound warmth.” – Black Book

“Lovely and bewitching, Cipher unfolds like an elegantly written novel.” – Alternative Press

“Land of Talk’s most lush album yet, tempering Powell’s dire guitar riffs with strings, brass and piano.” – Paste

“…sweeping harmonies and layered guitars that show Land of Talk at their best.” – American Songwriter
