“The Way Out”

    On Porcelain Raft‘s (Mauro Remiddi)  previous LP, Strange Weekend, the Italian multi-instrumentalist has a song titled “The Way In” – a rather heartbreaking ballad. Now the Brooklyn-based artist has released “The Way Out” from his forthcoming second full-length, Permanent Signal, due out August 20 via Secretly Canadian. The second track from Remiddi’s new album picks up the pace of the first single, “Think Of The Ocean”, and jump starts all the unsettling yet opulent textures to present the most perturbed and rocking traits we’ve heard from Porcelain Raft to date. And no wonder, since the song is the result of Hurricane Sandy’s effects, as Remiddi stated in his site.

    “I wrote “The Way Out” in New York during Hurricane Sandy. I was walking home, keeping my head down because of the rain. I noticed on the sidewalk that all of the trees had their roots growing throughout the pavement. Nature couldn’t be held back by cement.  I started to notice mold on the walls of buildings and the stains it created, and realized it didn’t matter how many times we paint the walls white, nature will always stain them again, and the stain will grow bigger with time. The vision of it makes you surrender”
