WL//WH Video Of The Day : EMKE ‘Mambo’

Video Of The Day

Emke is the experimental solo moniker of Hungarian singer & songwriter and one half of synth-noir duo Black Nail CabaretEmese Árvai-Illés.

“Mambo”, from her last December “Two” EP on the legendary Attrition‘s Two Gods label, is like a sublime and impressionist little darkly sonic palette interspersed with spectral abstract electronic colours and ethnic samples, enhanced by the sophisticated and distinctive Emke‘s deep voice, evoking her deep, soul-rending ‘appetite for sadness’; a fascinating, dark and magic atmosphere of melancholy, unease and anguish, that will dazzle and left you spellbind.

Enjoy the haunting and enigmatic visuals, shot by Emke herself in the Hungarian Gerecse Mountains just above her hometown, full of magic and wild naturalistic symbolism, opens to subjective interpretations.
