If you missed the crushing, psych-heavy tones of Somnuri's new album Nefarious Wave, you're missing out! Though our premiere of the band's new video for the title track, directed by Somnuri drummer Phil SanGiacomo, is certainly the gateway you need to go get into that album.
"The song has a trodding and lumbering feel to it. It builds layer after layer, and we wanted the video to have textures as well. We ended up shooting a lo-fi, psychedelic, first-person trek through the woods, tying to the song’s themes of survival and resilience," said the band.
"Those themes are present throughout the record as well and, ultimately, it was easy to see how they paralleled the world around us, filming and editing this video during lockdown. Thanks to our friend Eric Adams of the band Adam’s Castle, who helped get us some crazy shots way the fuck up in the mountains. We’re proud to have this video accompany the title track of this record."
Nefarious Wave is available here. Somnuri will also play Nefarious Wave in full at their record release show on August 12 at Union Pool in Brooklyn, NY alongside Netherlands and Husbandry.
