Sylph (the solo project of former S.C.U.M founder and vocalist Thomas Cohen) has shared a video for his new song “In the Morning Light.” It is the latest release from his upcoming EP, Silver As It Was Before, which will be out on May 21 via Mute. Watch the video below.
“‘In The Morning Light’ is a song about unification and the sunrise, recorded in the summer of 2018 in Berlin,” states Cohen in a press release. He adds that the video was shot “just outside of Muscat in Oman. We would only shoot at night and early in the morning, climbing the beautifully deformed rocks that overlooked the ocean.”
“In the Morning Light” features production by Berlin-based producer Nicholas Bougaïeff, who adds: “I was really drawn to this idea of a song structure combining harsh mechanical vibes and ethereal vocals. During recording, we spent a few days and nights going out to Berghain in between jam sessions at my studio.”
Cohen previously shared the song “Braid” upon announcement of the EP.
