Get weird with an arty new video from pop rock group Quilt

Quilt’s new record, Held In Splendor, dropped last month on Mexican Summer. The pop rock record finds the Boston band actually spending time recording its material for the first time ever, and it shows. Tracks like “Mary Mountain” and “The Hollow” twinkle and shine, while “Tired & Buttered” is just a straight-up rock number. The A.V. Club is premiering the arty new video for “Tie Up The Tides,” one of the album’s sparser and catchier singles. Color-drenched and kind of weird, the clip is an apt representation of both the band itself and its work.

Held In Splendor is available now via the Mexican Summer website. All of Quilt’s upcoming tour dates are below.
