Haux shares new single + video 'Heartbeat'
Words: Sam Geary
Photographer-turned-musician Woodson Black, aka Haux, has shared his new single and accompanying video.
The poignant, ghostly vocalled 'Heartbeat', with sparse, icy synths, atmospheric humming piano and stirring drums, is taken from his second EP 'Something To Remember', out March 30 via Ultra Records.
Black filmed the video to the track in the Cape Cod seaside town of Truro, Massachusetts, and features Sam Laiz and model Chloe Nørgaard. The clip is a preview of the forthcoming companion film and gives a glimpse of the characters ad narrative which tracks a young carpenter (Laiz) whose life takes an unexpected turn when he falls for a girl (Nørgaard) with pink hair and a dour secret. At the end of a whirlwind three days together the young man is left with a difficult choice that will explore the depths of love, loss and atonement amongst the gorgeous New England scenery.
“I get the chills anytime I remember this day at the beach. The landscape was so desolate it somehow made us shiver even more," Black says. "I tried my best to capture that haunting feeling of being completely alone with your thoughts; those relentless kind of thoughts that never leave you. I wanted to show that while there is always pain in remembering, there is tenderness too."
Haux has announced a spring European tour with two shows in the UK:
01 - London, Omeara
02 - Glasgow, Stereo
