Video: Aerialists – Group Manoeuvre II

Group Manoeuvre II is the new uplifting video from Canadian new-folk act Aerialists.

by Graeme Smith

Full of fun, energy and nature, the video for Group Manoeuvre II will have to smiling from the outset. It beautifully complements Aerialists modern folk sensibilities, which blends post-rock elements with traditional folk (a little something they’ve dubbed prog-trad.) In practice this means matching meandering fiddle with expansive drum and keys.

It’s definitely not like anything you’d have heard before and that’s what really drew me to it. You can see why Aerialists have been nominated as “Emerging Artists of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Awards. Check out the video for Group Manoeuvre II below.
