MUSK OX - Unveils First Single And Video From Upcoming Album

Canadian dark chamber folk trio Musk Ox, a band featuring members of Leprous, The Night Watch, and The Visit, among others, is pleased to unveil their stunning new video for the latest single, “Memoriam”. The song is the first revealed from the Musk Ox's upcoming third album Inheritance, which will be self-released on 9th July.

Elaborates the band: “We decided to release "Memoriam" as the first single because this piece manages to blend the innocence of the debut with the atmosphere of Woodfall while representing the more focused nature of Inheritance. Inheritance was scheduled to be mixed with Simon Larochette (Sarin, Chastity) at The Sugar Shack in March 2020 just as the world was coming to a halt. We ended up mixing the album entirely online with Simon, each of us in our own worlds, tirelessly shaping the songs under the ever-present and looming shadow of uncertainty. You can never predict how demanding certain compositions will be to complete and "Memoriam", despite its unassuming nature, proved to be the most challenging song to mix. It's a piece about honouring those we've lost while celebrating the cherished memories we keep close to our hearts. The album was engineered by our dear friend Dean Watson who has worked on every Musk Ox album, while the beautiful video was filmed and edited by our close collaborator Andrew Robillard. We would also like to express our gratitude to the Ontario Arts Council for supporting the production of Inheritance.” Link
