Two accomplished artists in their own right, Quartz Pistol and Moses Carr have combined their electronic alt-pop powers to form the duo Plastiq who have readied their debut single of avant-garde boundary pushing sounds, killer, alongside a futuristic, dreamlike CGI music video, out March 8 but premiering on Pilerats today!

Subverting expectations, killer takes catchy pop music foundations and fuses them with elements of hyperpop, hip hop and downtempo dance music, all with an experimental and captivating twist. A head-nod inducing beat is met by rumbling sub bass and all manner of soaring, swirling synths, while the pairs vocals are exquisitely processed to give them an otherworldly, sci-fi feel.

This sci-fi feel is no surprise given the duo first formed “through their shared love of apocalyptic sci-fi, modern art, and an appreciation of natures intelligence and complexity.” This carries over to the music video for killer, which was created by Adelaide-based cinematographer and visual artist CAPITAL WASTE. Through a mix of photogrammetry, visual production, motion capture and analogue video art, CAPITAL WASTE has constructed the perfect visual accompaniment for the track, seeing Plastiq in an uncanny virtual reality setting.

Give killer a watch and listen as it premieres on Pilerats today, ahead of its March 8 release!
