Clark Shares Dizzying "Peak Magnetic" Video - On Tour Now With Com Truise

Clark can now preview a new visual cut for stand out album track and live favorite ‘Peak Magnetic’. The topsy-turvy, vertigo-inducing video unrolls with the momentum of the track and dancers Kiani del Valle and Sophia Ndaba who are currently touring with Clark and his awe inspiring live show featuring the choreography of Melanie Lane.

 

The video is directed by Sander Houtkruijer. Sander has risen to prominence via visuals for artists like Floating Points and Matias Aguayo.

I wanted to create a distinct world that these two characters inhabit, but at the same time showing that this world is their own creation. This world has no traceable origin, but is more like a 3D test rendering, a kind of map, or template, both for itself and for other worlds outside of it. Also in accordance with Clark’s music, I wanted it to throw together different, seemingly opposing elements, like synthetic vs organic and live-action vs animation, and see how they can contrast with each other, and at some points, sync together, to create a new whole in which all these tensions dissolve.
— Sander Hautkrujier

Death Peak, released last month has proven to be one of his most lauded to date. It deftly weaves together the various threads of his extensive work, intertwining euphoric melodies and visceral rhythms of warehouse rave with newer vocal and choral elements.

Nick Hakim will release his debut full length album Green Twins on May 19 via ATO Records, and is set to head out on tour this month including an album release show at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on May 17. Today, fans can hear Green Twins in its entirety for the first time via NPR Music’s First Listen. “Nick Hakim writes songs that honor his own complexity and the complexity of love (they are, in part, inextricable), delivered through brilliant, pillowy, jazz-inflected arrangements,” notes NPR Music. “But, perhaps above all, it's the voice — a striking vessel of emotion and an impressive technical force.” Hear the album now: http://n.pr/2qvFs8h
