Next month, the futurist producer and Kanye West collaborator Hudson Mohawke will drop his new album Lantern upon an unsuspecting world. And this morning, he’s unveiled his video for the single “Very First Breath,” a collaboration with singer Irfane. Director Sam De Jong’s clip seems to tell the story of the beginning of a relationship and of its violent end. I say “seems to” because I’m not entirely sure what’s happening in the video. But even if the narrative is a bit muddy, the video has style to burn, telling its story with neon and glitter and red light bathing everything. For whatever reason, it also has Korean subtitles. (That’s Korean, right?) The video is a good one, and you can watch it below.
Lantern is out 6/16 on Warp.
