Even the current temperatures speaking a whole different language, autumn is already stretching out its feelers. Time for some Finnish melancholia in form of the brand new Hanging Garden single and video Embers, taken from their forthcoming album Blackout Whiteout! Check it out below.
On the song, Jussi Hämäläinen says:
“Embers was a song we all liked from the start. With simple riffs and dreamlike melodies, the song just got better and better as we went on with the recordings. Finally mr. Fredrik Norrman added his personal touch and the song was perfect. It’s also the first Hanging Garden song without any aggressive vocals.”
Nino Hynninen about the video concept:
“We had already a couple of years ago the idea of using acrobatics or dance as a narrative element in a music video. The idea about collaboration on Embers with the talented circus artist Juho Sarno arose during the recordings and you can really feel the emotion, spirit and force he’s conveying in communication with fire and embers.”
Blackout Whiteout contains guest appearances by Ville Sorvali (Moonsorrow) and Fredrik Norrman (October Tide) and is due to be released on September 25 in Europe and October 16 in North America.
