the snippets of new porches material aaron maine has offered up have been a far cry away from 2013’s raw slow dance with the cosmos.  after releasing the elastic and unpredictable “hour” in october, maine has doubled down on his new affinity for synth-driven explorations with “be apart,” the second single culled from next month’s pool.  the track dropped today alongside an eerie and somber music video, helmed by director daniel brereton, whose point-of-view camera work follows the band through a polychrome house and becomes an additional fiber woven through the song’s foreboding harmonic pads and buoyant melodic figures.
