South of France’s ‘Sad Beats’ driven Darkwave artist hailing from Toulouse, August Angst, returns with a DIY video for the immersive, cathartic, and melancholic new single “You’ll Never Know.”
The new single is permeated with heartfelt lyrics that describe the helpless feelings experienced by a traumatic memory of losing a child to conflict, abuse, and darkness.
Hypnotic kicks along with ominous sinister textures layer buzzing bass line menace with steady mechanical drum beats and eerie swirling ceremonial synth chords to carry aching, emotional vocals of longing and shame into a magnetic sway of hypnotic wistful dancing ecstasy, lit by winding icy bright chimes of distant, shimmering hope.
The immersive black and white music video explores the sacred grounds of an old church hiding in an enchanted forest. A walk through the woods leads a lost soul to a cathedral where religious icons etch beauty, awe, and nostalgia into the mind’s eye of insight. Sweeping camera work, skewed angles, and a surreal flow of motion capture a spiritual essence whilst lights and shadows caress nooks and crannies with enhanced wisdom, to comfort, inspire, and shine brilliant beams of anticipation into the dark and heavy waves of modern dystopic revelation.
