A few years ago, New York trio HAERTS dropped a brilliant self-titled debut album after spending a fair while before that releasing beautiful songs like Wings and All The Days that were accompanied by visually enrapturing vignettes and videos.
Now a duo after Derek McWilliams left the line up last year, remaining members Nina Fabi and Ben Gebert have just put out a brand new collection called POWER/LAND. As per, it’s sonically exquisite – Fabi has a voice that could melt butter – and this weekend it has been joined by a short film that soundtracks the full arc of the EP’s three songs – Eva, Interlude and Turn It Around.
Directed by Californian artist and skater Julian Klincewicz, the clip which you can stream at the top of this post (EP below), tackles themes of youth and freedom and was shot on to VHS, which gives it that nice throwback feel.
It’s good to have these guys back.
