Porches, the recording project of New York-based Aaron Maine, has today announced his new album Pool will be released on February 5 through Domino Records. The record was written and recorded in his Manhattan apartment, and was mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles.

Today, Porches unveiled the Alan Del Rio Ortiz-directed video for recent single Hour. The elegant, synth-driven single is a collaboration between Maine and his partner Greta Kline, aka Frankie Cosmos. Watch the video below.

Says Del Rio Ortiz of the clip:

“I wanted to create a simple but hallucinogenic montage dealing with a love affair that no longer exists but would never vanish. On the surface we see a young couple driving around the city and sneaking into a swimming pool. However we also see nostalgic imagery that creates a feeling of loss and illustrates a severed relationship.”

Pool drops on February 5 through Domino. Pre-order here.
