ticktock – ‘Pastel Clouds’

ticktock – ‘Pastel Clouds’


Danish / England-based musician Sebastian Zieler goes by the name of ticktock.

‘Pastel Clouds’, from his his second EP, Fault Lines on the The Big Oil Recording Company label, is a song which harks bark to the early ambient post-dubstep style of James Blake and Mount Kimbie, maintaining a sprightly synth line throughout the song’s head-nodding rhythm.

Zieler told The Fader:

“To me, ‘Pastel Clouds’ feels like it takes place in a space between dream and reality. A calm flowing in and out of everything—on the border of sleep. The video was made by my friends in Brazil, Gleeson and Luciano. I had written Gleeson and asked if he would be up for making a video for ‘Pastel Clouds.’ They ended up getting a whole team together to work on it, spending a couple of days at the beach outside São Paulo to film. It’s a real labor of love and means a lot to all of us. Everything from color to movement and pace fits perfectly with the music.”
