King Cardiac has handed the paint brush to the machine for their upcoming music video to “Midnight Cigarette,” animated entirely using artificial intelligence.

The video travels through abstract, kaleidoscopic landscapes that morph in time with the song’s brooding groove. Though the striking images are born out of a computer matrix they have an emotional quality that is surprisingly human.

Band leader Gabriel DeSantis says these psychedelic visuals are the perfect match to the song’s dream-like imagery:

“I wrote Midnight Cigarette during a period of intense jet-lag, that purgatory where the line between reality and illusion is blurred. When I saw these AI generated artworks for the first time I recognized that same ‘in-between’ place.”

“Midnight Cigarette” will be released on March 4th, 2022. It is the third single off King Cardiac’s debut record, Bloodlines, due out in May 2022.

The record was recorded at The Rooster Studio in Toronto with engineer, Don Kerr (Bahamas, Ron Sexsmith) at the helm. Bloodlines was produced by DeSantis and Kerr and mastered by Grammy nominee and Juno and Polaris Prize winner, Philip Shaw Bova (Feist, Lido Piementa, Andy Shauf).

King Cardiac is Gabriel DeSantis, Paul Metcalfe, Sam Petite, Tom Richards, Lowell Whitty and Alan Zemaitis.
