Arbor Labor Union Releases Video for Eight-Minute LP Centerpiece ‘Volume Peaks’

Last November, Athens/Atlanta band Pinecones, a fast Flagpole favorite, announced it was changing its name to Arbor Labor Union and signing with indie juggernaut Sub Pop, which released the group’s new album, I Hear You, May 13.

The band recently revealed a music video for the record’s eight-minute centerpiece, the muscular, meandering “Volume Peaks.” The clip was filmed at Jekyll Island’s Driftwood Beach and a Ruth Street house and features lighting by local psychedelic-projection collective Eye Gate.

Check it out below:

Arbor Labor Union is currently on tour in support of I Hear You, and will wrap up their trip with a show at the 40 Watt Club on Friday, June 17.
