Texas post-western ambient drone duo Cortége stream a music video for the track »Chasing Daylight: Part 1« off their new EP, »Chasing Daylight«, out now via Desert Records. Video was directed by Talon Skibsrud.
Cortége follow their ongoing themes of doom and destruction in their latest music video, »Chasing Daylight: Part 1«.” Director Talon Skibsrud was inspired by an excerpt from the Bhagavad Gita, which J. Robert Oppenheimer quotes after creating and successfully testing the bomb. Referring to a tale of a Hindu prince who witnesses the god Vishnu taking its multi-armed cosmic form and exclaiming, “Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”

Austin (TX) – post-western, heavy ambient doom duo Cortége has signed to New Mexico’s Desert Records. The label released the band’s new EP »Chasing Daylight« February 26, 2021 on CD and digital formats.
Recorded, mixed and mastered in the fall of 2020 with Jeff Henson (Duel) at Red Nova Ranch in Austin, Texas, Chasing Daylight is a cinematic, chrome tinged portrait du temps for the end of the world as well as a musical foreshadowing of things to come. Lush arrangements wind through the familiar Cortége territories of drone, prog, doom, western and ambient soundscapes with a few surprises therein, including a guest appearance from Michael St. Claire on brass.
