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.”
