Watch the visual below!
ARIA-chart topping duo Hermitude recently returned with their new track, St Claire. Now, the duo have shared an official visual for the track, directed by Paven Gill of Sonder Films Production.
Filmed in the Blue Mountains heartland, we follow the clips lead character as she skates her way through the town, taking in the natural greenery before meeting up with friends to spend the afternoon together and showcase youth culture within the town.
Speaking of the visual, Gill shares: "It was amazing working with Hermitude. Learning about the stories and the process behind each song gave us a deep appreciation for this project and their artistry. We really wanted to show a different side of the Blue Mountains with scenes of the youth culture and what it’s like up in the mountains. There were definitely challenges working with the weather up in the mountains but we pushed to work around the weather and aimed to capture authentic moments that give the audience a sense of the Blue Mountains."
Ushering in a new era for the pair, the track opens with scintillating synth work, building to a textural soundscape that weaves together driving rhythms and ear worm melodies before a modulated beat drop. Whilst electronic in nature, there is an organic aura to the track that offers up a visceral re-energising flow.
Hermitude began working on the track during a writing trip to New Zealand’s Dunedin, before recording and building upon their composition in their Blue Mountains-based hometown. St Claire is just the first taste of what is to come from the duo throughout 2022.
St Claire is out now!
