Still with fuzz club for something released earlier in the year that featured on his debuting EP as Medistation, this is a newly peeled video accompanying the track ‘I never knew’ by Eric Strand. Now every now and again, a rare occurrence mind you, something comes along that just simply blows you away to leave you inconsolably at a loss when it parts and the stylus finds its resting spot.

Utterly devastating and beautifully sighed.
