Today we share Tomas Barfod‘s first music video for the track “Pulsing”. Directed by Cherise Payne (dir. videos for Sampha, Apache Beat), the video shows the intersection of teenage love and the local meat market over Barfod’s constantly building track featuring the vocals of collaborator Nina K.
On the video, director Cherise Payne says:
The first thing that struck me about Tomas’ track was that the melody and vocal were so beautiful but there was an underlying darkness in the bass and the beat. I wanted to explore this idea of beauty and darkness in the video by presenting a series of contrasts. The blood and gore of a meat market is contrasted with the passion and skill a butcher lends to their work, much like an artist working on a sculpture. The haze of a young couple exploring the city after a night out is contrasted with the the focus and bustle of a busy early morning market
