Emotions Run High in SOHN's New Video for "Signals"
In case you missed it, SOHN dropped a new single last week. Presenting "Signals," his comeback since 2014 is a strong one at that. We've waited and waited for new material coming from the UK artist, and his return was a triumphant one at that. Today, the visual element for "Signals" released featuring actress Milla Jovovich. Paired with the emotionally invested track, the video shows her in a black and white clip filmed in one non-stop shot.
Jovovich was very passionate about working with the artist, saying --
"When I discovered SOHN, I immediately fell in love with his voice and music. I literally had his album on repeat for weeks and soon found that I felt an incredibly visual connection to his music. As the music played, I kept seeing images in my head and it was really the first time that I felt the itch to direct. SOHN and I started talking about a month later and he sent me “Signal” which completely bowled me over. The beauty and raw energy in the song, the harmonies… It’s just everything I love about music, all there in one song.
Once I started thinking about how to bring the original concept to life, I became obsessed with bringing projections into the mix. I felt like we could bring the viewer into the mind of the character I was portraying through the different projections, both behind me and on my body, that would be both emotional and visually exciting. What happened on the day was absolute magic; one of the takes was so powerful and really told the story so well that SOHN knew we had the video for his song right then, on the day, totally live. This was something he had wanted right from our first conversations, to make the video completely analog and real and to somehow be able to shoot everything in one take. It is a testament to the focus and skill of our amazing DP Vern Nobles and his crew that we were able to capture the soul of the song in such a seemingly effortless way; no cuts, no tricks. I am so excited that SOHN trusted me to visually bring his music to life and so proud that I was able to put the team together who made this video possible."
This project is as beautiful as it gets. Check it out above and sing along below.
Wave across the water for me
Let me know
That you’ll be waiting ever for me
Oh I’ve been travelling
Waiting for a moment of peace
These stormy weathers
Have got me thinking of how I want it to be
Light a thousand fires under me
Give me no doubt
That I’m the one that never has to leave
Oh I’ve been divided
Time and time again you keep the peace
Give me shelter
Let me be the man I wanted to be
