Official video for Moan, directed by Niels Gråbøl and Ulrik Crone. In memory of Laika (✝1957), the first living creature to enter orbit. Original version of Moan appears on the Trentemøller album "The Last Resort" (2006).
*Laika’s legend and legacy ought to give us pause. Space exploration needn’t be an “assault on the universe,” a militaristic enterprise undertaken without regard for other creatures’ suffering. Dogs were likely the first animals that we domesticated, and the first to migrate with us across the globe. They have never left us, despite our failings and abuses. As we humanize space, let us remember that dogs humanize us.
Paris Combo's new album, is inspired by a rare condition known also as the “broken-heart syndrome" – thank goodness Paris Combo have the cure! On their new release, lead-singer Belle du Berry and the quintet once again combine musical influences to underpin the infectious, toe-tapping grooves which have become their hallmark. The album, which leads us through a deliciously varied collection of musical atmospheres ranging from the intimacy of the live combo to more lush orchestral settings, adds to the group's already fabulously cosmopolitan musical palette and enhances its already considerable global attraction.
‘In the Null Void video, we follow a desperate character in his attempt to transcend a physical space and escape his addictions via a hallucinatory female. The environment is a dystopic, brutalist variation on an old theme: the stifled, domestic household. The refrigerator, the television, the wine bottles, and –most notably – the main character’s nonexistent female counterpart evoke this dark theme. The cold lighting, concrete floors and metal containers further elicit the atmosphere of a prison in which he tries to resist the temptations offered by his imaginary friend. The illusory female character’s performance is mostly static, as though she is another object in the room. Her eyes are glazed over in reverie, the mode by which the action will follow. These reveries take various forms, limited by the sparseness of her environment. Dave plays a kind of narrator, floating around her dreams (sometimes actually), performing the song, alluding to the twofold nature of escape. Most important is the television, which serves as a physical manifestation of these purely mental (intellectual) fantasies. Its formal role in the narrative is essential, and as the viewer’s perspective is fed through the television, we lose our place. What is real and what is the fantasy? In this way, we are able to identify with the protagonist. After reality and fantasy are knotted together, they fracture, and the space is literally broken into parts. This is reminiscent of a familiar sensation at the end of a dream or reverie, when the idea comes together and then falls apart. The video thus gives us a picture of what the nature of escape can sometimes feel like: the ecstasy of transcendence, the eluding of time, the total circumvention of life as a physical object.“ ’says Saccenti.
Nicely’s new single “Solar Wind”. Nicely explains the meaning behind the song and video, “Its insomniac life where sleep is so light that you lie just beneath its soft surface. There the dreams get you as turbulent nocturnal winds blow in.”
He continues, “Disconnected fragment dreams, some lonely, others illogical and alienated. A twin appears, underwater trains, speaking winds. A friendless walk through a timeless bar to find psychedelic salvation by the toilets. Naturally, surrealist resonances have bled in to further pull the absurd from the plain .. all in a place that you know won’t be there in the morning.”
