For Chris Howard and Gabriel Arniella, California not only represents home, but the place where they had their musical awakening. Formed in 2014, the duo known as Hidden Mountains has curated a sound that's as eclectic as it is esoteric. Featuring dream-like trances that reflect the California coast, the duo has managed to carve out their own sense of sound in a short period of time. Ahead of the release of their self-titled LP, we're premiering the video for "Vero."
"I wanted to focus on having the look and feel of this video match the song," Howard says. "The video was shot in Wales, and I think the director, Gustavo Arteaga, really understand what I was trying to achieve. Gus and he team really succeeded in capturing a visual version of 'Vero.'"
Hidden Mountains' self-titled debut will be released this fall.
