Synth sculptor Nils Bech is set to drop the Echo LP at the end of the week. Bech makes electronic movements not unlike intense, symphonic 8-bit video game soundtracks. Today he shares the video for the longing, evocative “Please Stay.” The song has a dramatic, chamber feel with the intricate instrumentation crashing into electronic flourishes, ambient sweeps, warped synths, and booming drums. As for the Torgeir Gabrielsen-directed clip, it fittingly takes a scene from the Shakespearean play Richard III at the National Theatre of Norway. In the scene, Lady Anne (Emil Johnsen) and Richard III (Kåre Conradi) have a heated argument which is intensified a hundred fold set against Bech’s powerful arrangement. Check it out below along with his most recent single “Glimpse Of Hope.”
The Echo LP is out 10/14 via DFA. Pre-order it here.
