SYSTEM OF ADOWN vocalist Serj Tankian has released a visualizer video for the solo song “Rumi Loves His Cars”
The song comes from Tankian‘s upcoming new EP “Perplex Cities“, which arrives this Friday, October 21st.
As an artist who has brought forth diverse types of music with each release, it’s no surprise that this EP explores new musical territory. In his words, “This whole collection of songs within ‘Perplex Cities‘ is a completely different sound than what I’ve done before. More electronic, subtle and deeper in terms of its layers of presentation musically. ‘Perplex Cities‘ gives off an aura that is unique and unlike my previous releases.”
Before reaching the music streaming platforms next month, each track off the EP will be made available via a free augmented reality experience featuring Tankian presenting the five tracks himself in an intimate fashion. Via the app he will be appearing in the same space as the listener-viewer to explain the music and listen along. The full EP will be available on all major streaming platforms thereafter, on October 21.
Says Tankian: “I’m always trying to create new and interesting ways to connect with people via my music. We made some amazing videos for the last EP ‘Elasticity‘, so I wanted to try something different for ‘Perplex Cities‘. I love the idea of appearing in the room with someone listening to my music. It’s intimate, fun and different.”
