Hudson Mohawke is just about a month away from the release of Lantern on June 16th and this creative new video should get some people even more amped these next few weeks.
I know I am after the video transformed my opinion of “Very First Breath” to the positive.
It’s a cinematic story that follows former lovers, turned deadly foes (in a knife fight, btw) that has an 80s Japanese theme and presentation throughout. So yeah, it turns kinda dark, but as a result the video takes the direct lyrics to another level of meaning. I appreciate the vibe and love the little things like that old school Japanese font for the subtitles. Watch and see how it plays out above.
Hudson Mohawke is prime and ready for his first LP after a flurry of successful solo material, co-signs and collabs (Kanye), and placements (Apple). Lantern is announced today via the album trailer above and is accompanied by a tracklist that most notably features (to this Gowhere audience) Miguel and Jhene Aiko. Niiice. Two of my favorite current singers.
Lookin’ forward to Lantern on June 15th via Warp Records.
