Synesthesia/Synaesthesia (noun): "a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound produces the visualization of a certain colour". The new video for 'Crackle Pop' from orchestral noise merchants Human Pyramids aims to bring the synesthetic experience to all, in an immersive 360 degrees online environment.

At the junction of the rarely trodden path between contemporary classical and post-rock, 'Crackle Pop' is a joyous cacophony, appropriately encapsulated by the John Lynch-directed video. Explosions of shapes and colours prove to be a delightful accompaniment to the musical fireworks of the new track, which appears on the forthcoming second album, 'Home'.

Ahead of the new release, the Paul Russell-led project headlines The Lexington in London, this very evening - Friday 27th October. If you can't make it down to see the ensemble, which may number up to sixteen musicians of various dispositions, then donning a VR headset for the video of 'Crackle Pop' below may well be a suitable alternative.

'Home' is out November 10th on Three Mile Town Records. Find out more at
