Premiere: WHY? go slow in ‘The Barely Blur’ video

WHY? go slow in ‘The Barely Blur’ video

Yoni Wolf released his new album ‘Moh Lhean’ earlier this year.

WHY? released their new album ‘Moh Lhean’ earlier this year, a record that “moves to the beat of its own”.

Yoni Wolf has now shared a new video for the album’s track ‘The Barely Blur’, a slow-mo trip through joggers into the park, eventually exploding into a faraway galaxy. It’s quite a trip.

Talking of the track and video, Yoni says: ”The Barely Blur was one of the last songs I wrote for Moh Lhean.  It embodies a frustration, in a way, about how incomplete our understanding, even of our own experience, as conscious matter in this universe. That said, it’s not dark really, but more filled with inquisitive wonder.  Idea for the video came to me in my sleep about 6 month ago.

“The initial idea was just to shoot close ups of runners in a marathon in super slow motion. The idea developed through conversations between myself and Scott, and then further, of course, throughout the process of making the video, as it began to take shape.  Scott would be more equipped to speak on more technical aspects of the video.”

WHY? are set to play a handful of UK shows next month, starting in Leeds on the 7th.
