Sean Nicholas Savage released his latest full length offering 'Bermuda Waterfall' this week to a warm reception of critical accolades. Marking the release, Savage now shares the first visual off the album for highlight 'The Rat'.
Directed by long time visual collaborator Angus Borsos who has made videos for Julia Holter, Braids and Nite Jewel among others, the video pairs the jaunty, jazz-tinged piano pop of the song with a stark black and white set piece, serving as the backdrop to a captivatingly unmediated performance from Savage.
Savage will be playing a special live show backed by a full band on Tuesday, May 20th, at Dalston Roof Park. Support comes from fellow Arbutus Records label mates Blue Hawaii and Arbutus Records will be DJ'ing.
Savage's gift for bracing, timeless song craft and prowess as a philosopher reaches a new zenith with Bermuda Waterfall, which presents 12 tightly written pop songs packed with rich musical depths and devastating emotional gravity.
The album offers listeners the opportunity to observe the fascinating evolution of a truly one-of-a-kind artist and confident expansion of his musical palette. 'Darkness' and 'The Rat' see cinematic piano imbued with chilling honesty. 'Heartless' and 'Hands Dance' are carried by Spanish guitars and wouldn't feel out of place in an out of place John Hughes film, albeit a decidedly unusual one. Elsewhere, 'Empire' and 'Some Things Never Die' see Savage's lush signature harmonies hover longingly over new romanticist soul.
