East meets West in this beautifully shot music video from Those Wicked Hours.
As the tall trees gently sway over a rich swell of the synth, you know your already in for an atmospheric treat with the new video and track from Those Wicked Hours.
The video for ‘West’ takes you on a journey through rural Japan into the sprawling modern centre of Tokyo. Waves of ethereal synthesised magic rise and fall, over scenes of abundant nature and calm. It’s some serious early hours music – if you’re looking to mellow out this is a great place to start.
The song itself has a distinctly eighties vibe, College & The Electric Youth definitely springs to mind here; it’s full of tasty samples, sequenced bass synths and rich airy guitars strums, while the vocal line connects the dots, droning evocative lyrics over the soft soundscape.
