Ok everyone, here it is. The video for the controversial new track by Steven Wilson. The track of course is the pop song “Permanating”, a piano driven, sun-soaked pop song that extols the virtues of nostalgia as escapism. The Permanating video picks up the music’s baton and runs with it, bringing in a troupe of dancers from the Bollywood Company to create a glorious Technicolor blast of summer sun.
Steven Wilson: “I’m very proud of the video for Permanating. As soon as I wrote this song I had it in mind that Bollywood dancing would be the perfect accompaniment, such a joyous form of dance for what is probably the most joyous pop song I have ever come up with. I hope it will put a smile on your face as it does for me.”

Permanating was directed by Andrew Morgan for Electric Light Studios.
