SOHN revealed the details behind his forthcoming full-length Rennen towards the end of last year, but the electronic-minded artist is giving listeners a shot of what's to come from the disc with a video for album opener "Hard Liquor."
The video was created by Jovan Todorovic and was shot in Belgrade, Serbia. Todorovic had this to say about his entirely black and white clip:
SOHN sent us a frame from Jurassic Park, a cup of water with ripples in it resonating from the massive steps of the approaching T-Rex. The concentric circles inspired me to look for more circles, not only in the physical world, but even more importantly within my inner life. A line is not enough to symbolize the vector of one's life, I feel it's maybe better represented as a progression of circles that are chained together. So this video is about circles and lines, the past, present and future, regret, anger, despair… being lost in the tunnel of ones inner life and the physical labyrinth that surrounds us.
To me the video is very meaningful on a personal level, but I tried to paint it in such a way so everyone could potentially reflect on themselves. We shot the video back home in Serbia and were lucky to find some amazing locations, and a wonderful crew. But it was Dado, one of the most talented theater actors in Croatia today, who really gave the video its substance.
Rennen arrives on January 13 via 4AD. Watch the video for "Hard Liquor" in the player below, and check out SOHN's upcoming tour dates, which include stops in Canada, over here.
