By now familiar over here at WL//WH, Violet Nox, the Boston, MA atmospheric Experimental Electronic trio of Andrew Abrahamson (synthesis, samples, and clocked machines), Dez DeCarlo (synth, effect pedals), and Noell Dorsey (vocals), back to the blog with the premiere of the Jungian video created by the Venezuelan-born, Argentina-based artist Del Siervo for “Loki”, the fourth track taken from the “Vortex & Voices” album, released last September via Somewhere Cold Records (US) and Aumega Project (Germany).

“Loki” is a dreamy and eclectic new age electronic-folk song about Fate. Noell’s powerful vocals long in an agony and ecstasy of melancholy and hope, guiding the listener through a heady immersive, and suffused aura lilted by the slo-mo pulses of crispy hollow percussion patterns, and rippling pinpoint dull bass tones, encircled by floating light fluid glows, and harsh hypnotic expansive string resonances. It will leave you in a calm, clear, introspective mood rooted in a deep emotional aching.

A transfixing video by Del Siervo syncs vibrant psychedelic visions with dramatic transformations to immerse the viewer in the metaphysical nuance of the soundtrack. Computer-drawn archetypal animations morph the delicate and intricate beauty of Mother Nature’s butterflies and birds with the anatomy of the human figure, creating beautiful shapeshifting chimeras inspired by the ancient traditions of the Amazons.

Violet Nox‘s 7-track EP, “Vortex and Voices”, is out now, on Limited CD & Digital, through Somewhere Cold Records, distributed by Aumega Project.
