“At Height” is the first single and video from Inwards aka Kristian Shelley’s album Bright Serpent. Like many great albums, the place where”At Height” was created very much informs its sound. Retreating to Shelley’s handmade cabin and surrounded by similarly handcrafted modular synthesizers, Inwards crafted this ebullient and playful track full of bright arpeggios, woozy, spring-loaded synths and shifting ambient pads. On the video for “At Height” this composition plays as the backing track for educational films on nuclear power that, spliced in with newsreel footage of the state’s attempt to control this new form of power, shows its unintended consequences.
