Kee Avil: See, My Shadow

Montréal experimental producer Kee Avil joins the eclectic roster of Constellation Records, and unveils new song and video See, My Shadow, ahead of her next full length expected early 2022.

A tough to pinpoint track with a dark and enigmatic predisposition, See, My Shadow combines elements from post punk, experimental electronica and art pop, and it comes with an ultra moody accompanying video.

The artist comments on the new track: "A shadow’s moment, distorted. Warped piano samples, chipped ceramic cups, swirling metal, feedback assembled. I used to think this was a love song.

"Constructed from a demo, never finished, originally recorded for the Kee Avil EP. See, my shadow is one of my most produced songs - a large part of the work was to strip it down and find the right balance between chaos and density vs stability and drive. It will be the first song on a new album.

"Writing this I find myself trying to find a reason why I would ‘stand here blind, deaf and mute’ - ultimately the words are there for their rhythm, imagery and texture. The text for the ending was written in one moment, intense but fleeting, later adapted. The meaning of the song changes all the time - fittingly, it’s as though this moment has been passed on to my shadow."

On the video, Kee Avil remarks: "To reveal what I’ve hid, what is recognised, ignored, what is real. Blank, misdrawn, rebuilt, the creature as the i. With masks, I break and reconstruct these ideas, mix the familiar with the abstract."
