‘I Forget Where We Were’ is the title track on Ben Howard‘s stunning recent LP, released in back in October, reviewed here. The starkly metaphorical new video, a directorial debut for Howard, features a slightly-shortened version of the track and plays off of the song’s abstractly poetic lyrics, visually capturing the balance between romance and realism in just the way Howard’s music does on the album.
Irish singer/songwriter Hozier has upped the ante once again, unveiling not one but two separate videos for his recent single ‘From Eden’. The song features on both his self-titled debut album and the earlier ‘From Eden’ EP. The album version of the song is slightly different to the EP version, and the new official video highlights one of the main differences between the two iterations, namely the slithering, flamenco-flavoured instrumental bridge. The video takes a slightly off-kilter view of the oft-celebrated Bonnie and Clyde scenario, perfectly synching the crisis point of the dramatic action with the aforementioned bridge section.
In addition to the official video, Sofar Sounds have just premiered a live performance video from Hozier’s appearance at their Manchester showcase back in September. The intimate Manchester performance features a stripped back version of ‘From Eden’, emphasising Hozier’s soulful singing and bluesy acoustic guitar chops over his sense of dramatic flair. The skillfully edited video below demonstrates both the high quality of Hozier’s musicianship and the cozy, informal atmosphere that has become synonymous with Sofar Sounds. Watch both below.
