Ahead of the release of her new album WHITE FIRE, KENICHI & THE SUN – aka Katrin Hahner – has now shared the bewitching new single Splendour, out now.
Her most inventive and ambitious release to date, WHITE FIRE showcases Katrin’s unique ability to create boundlessly immersive soundscapes that are undeniably striking throughout. Each track flows effortlessly into the next, creating a powerful narrative from the offset that is both dreamlike and haunting. Katrin’s deep, rich vocal tone soars effortlessly over the percussive flourishes and swirling synths, creating a sound akin to the likes of Björk and The Knife.
Talking about the Splendour video, Katrin explains, “it depicts the devotion, love, sacredness and struggle between humans and the forces that drive us apart or towards each other. It’s a look inside a person’s soul, profanity and sacredness, chaos and harmony, success and failure, human and divine, feminine and masculine. In the end, it ́s all one. Directed by Adrian Künzel, the video mainly features the strikingly powerful performances of Li Kehua and Motoya Kondo.
WHITE FIRE is out on 3rd April 2020.
