Steven A. Clark Shares “Can’t Have” Video, Announces Tour Dates With Sinkane


Steven A. Clark debuted his fantastic new single, “Cant Have,” as Zane Lowes World Record on Beats 1 only two weeks ago and is back today with a stunning new video for it. DIY Magazine describes the video as “a clip packing drama, love stories and enough emotion to set out Steven A. Clark as a true star.


Director Chris Black recalls, “I discovered Steven’s music about a year ago while driving home. A radio station in LA, KCRW, was playing ‘Just Ride.’ The sound of Steven’s voice and music was just so cool and smooth; I thought, this is who I want to work with! A year later, Secretly Canadian sent me the track and I flipped over how good it was; a proper track to introduce Steven to the world.

Listening to Steven’s music, and even when we were shooting with him, you can feel that he’s emotionally invested in his music which makes it easy when shooting videos. We felt we had a responsibility to create a video that does justice to the emotions and feelings that Steven is drawing from in ‘Can’t Have.‘ My DP, Dustin Lane, and I both agree that Steven is without a doubt, a star,” says Black.


This fall, Steven A. Clark will tour in support of his Secretly Canadian debut, The Lonely Roller (out September 18th), making a stop at CMJ and also opening for Sinkane. A full list of dates is below with more to be announced soon.

WATCH // Suuns Share ‘Sunspot’ Video Dir. By Ben Shemie, Tour UK And Europe In September + October

Celebrating newly announced UK + European tour dates this fall, SUUNS have shared a short film featuring ‘Sunspot’ from their 2013 release Images du Futur. Premiering via The Quietus and directed by band frontman Ben Shemie, the 30 minute music video delves into the ideas of repetition and absolution of sin. Watch the video above or here on Youtube.

For more on the story behind the new video, Ben explains below:

“This video is based around hands. Dirtying ones hands, blood on the hands, and cleansing ones hands of sin are the themes that drive the imagery in this video. I saw Richard Serra’s ‘Hand Catching Lead’ video at the Metropolitan museum in NY a few years ago. Despite all the monumental works, this small raw video stuck with me the most. Something about the simplicity about looking at the artist’s own hands, the realness was very intense. It is Serra’s work that provides the visual inspiration behind this video.

“The compulsion of washing ones hands – absolution of sin – is very powerful. This compulsive behavior, regardless of the context, can relate to all of us. This one-take sequence that closes the video is not only physically demanding, but also very challenging to the viewer. Repetition, the common thread of the droney nature of Suuns’ music, plays tricks on our sense of time and drives the fanatical and compulsive themes of the video to the edge of our tolerance.”

If you haven’t already, pick up their Polaris Prize nominated album from last year, Images Du Futur via your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, and SC Distribution.
