Avant noir trio SANNHET have premiered their music video for the song “So Numb” ahead of their upcoming European and U.S. tour dates. The track is taken from the band’s 2017 long player of the same name; the video for “So Numb” is streaming now via Roadburn.
Of the video, the band comments:
“It is our intention for the viewer to use the sensory experience of a Sannhet event as you might a Tarot or a Rorschach.
While witnessing the images, sound waves moving through their bodies, associations manifest and tangible meanings are gleaned – the product of their personal experience, a reflection of their inner self.
The interpretations that emerge originate in the viewers’ subconsciousness, thereby the performance becomes their own. This video is an attempt to peer into the experiential journey of one of our performances.”
Much like their earlier video for the track Salts, SANNHET have utilised intense visuals to further enhance the impact of the band. Visual aesthetics have played a significant part in the continued evolution of the band, nowhere more so than in their live shows, with visuals triggered by the band as they perform. A full list of tour dates can be found below.
Since the release of So Numb last year, the band have collected glowing accolades for their unclassifiablei nstrumental music that’s heavy and light, cinematic and intimate, dense but minimal. While they don’t write lyrics, they do write subtexts. They pen love letters, extended epistles, and suicide notes, all without words. With So Numb, SANNHET created a new world out of very few ingredients.
The collection was recorded and produced by Peter Katis, who’s known for his work with Mercury Rev, Interpol, the National, and Oneida among others. Working with Katis, the production illuminates a more open sound for the band. While Sannhet’s second album, 2015’s Revisionist, was bigger and harsher than their 2013 debut, Known Flood, they offer a more wistful, melodic approach here, leading The Independent to describe the record as “a powerful representation of the band’s internal conflicts, the original wound, self-destruction and the redemptive qualities they continue to seek for the rest of their lives.”
