It’s impossible not to be struck by the beauty of this next video, which was filmed in the Lebanese mountains. It’s also inevitable that you’ll fall for London-based Iranian musician and producer (and ex-Sunday Times correspondent) Cyrus Shahrad’s profoundly moving music as Hiatus. Father, which arrives ahead of his third LP, is a lush, cinematic opus. Its ornate makeup and lavish orchestral consistency are like a mixture of Bonobo and J.Viewz, panoramic and rife with cathartic emotion. Father’s video tells a touching story about a 14 year old boy who has lost his father to a heart attack. The grieving boy’s subconscious is depicted in the magical realistic imagery of the clip.

Zero 7’s Henry Binns and singer Bo Bruce first met in 2013 when they were working on some tracks for Bo’s top ten debut album. The rapport between the two was obvious from the get go, so in 2015, they headed over to the Zero 7 studio with some friends, including Hiatus and Jodi Milliner, and created what would become their first album as Equador. Blood is one of the first tracks revealed from said album, alongside its double A side partner Bones Of Man. It’s a haunting song, a dark progressive pop and trip hop aria that alternates between hushed gentle beauty and mellifluously surging grandeur. It’s almost like BROODS gone Zero 7. Blood comes with an entrancing music video full of riveting abstract visuals, too. The song will be out as a single on July 1st, while Equador’s debut album, Bones Of Man, is set to be released in September on Pegdoll Records.

OFFICIAL VID: Hiatus – We Can Be Ghosts Now (feat. Shura)

Here’s a neat little stop motion animation video for serene downtempo track We Can Be Ghosts, featuring Shura, from London producer Hiatus, aka Cyrus Shahrad. This guy’s new on my radar and I’m liking what I’m hearing. The electronic tune has a very warm feel, unlike a lot of the darker or chillier stuff floating around lately.
