Blueneck unveil a video for ‘Sirens’

maxresdefaultThis week sees a welcome return for former GIITTV track of the day ‘Sirens’ (#398, November 18, 2013). A deep slice of post-rock, the song not only announces the arrival of Blueneck’s fifth studio album later this year, but this time round it has also been given a full video accompaniment.

The renowned Danish graphic artist and cinematographer Lasse Hoile, most noted for his past work with Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater directed the video. Beautifully shot almost entirely in monochrome, it captures perfectly the dark, brooding presence and inherent melancholia of ‘Sirens’. To the song’s fundamental sense of great foreboding, though, Hoile has added the vaguely suppressed textures of sinisterism and sexuality, shackles from which ‘Sirens’ eventually breaks free as it reaches its euphoric dénouement.
