Greek progressive/post-rock band Playgrounded release a live performance video for the track »The Swan«

Greek progressive/post-rock band Playgrounded release a video for the track »The Swan«, recorded live at Fuzz Club in Athens.

»The Swan« is taken from Playgrounded’s new album, »The Death Of Death«, out on March 18th, 2022 via Pelagic Records.

The band comments: “Warming up for the tour with The Ocean and LLNN we decided to share a taste of our live show that we are bringing across Europe and the UK. Soon after we released »The Death Of Death« we performed in one of Athens’ iconic venues, Fuzz, presenting the whole record along with a few tracks from our debut, »In Time With Gravity«. The recording captures the band in one of our most sentimental performances in our home city, after two years of concert absence.”

On »The Death Of Death«, Playgrounded analyse and take apart their surroundings, reducing reality to its smallest components, subsequently converting them into sound to create a new platform – a representation of reality from which they build their artistic vision.

In essence »The Death Of Death« is dialectical, a study of unity in opposition. A disclosure of contradictory aspects of reality, an expression of their mutual relationship. From these contradictions the band manages to construct a brooding world of dark magnificence.

»The Death Of Death« has the appeal of a film score that slowly starts to haunt you as the movie progresses. The more you listen to it, the more its sublime beauty becomes apparent.
