Snow Ghosts have unveiled a brooding new video for ‘Heavy Heart’, taken from their new album 'A Quiet Ritual', out now via fabric’s Houndstooth label.
A chillingly beautiful and captivating track, ‘Heavy Heart’ marries pensive soundscapes and ethereal vocals which build to a climactic, distorted crescendo, while hauntingly catchy vocal melodies convey its unsettling sentiment. The video serves as the perfect accompaniment, providing an unnerving, dark and ritualistic vessel for the tones to pass through.
The band explain, “The video for 'Heavy Heart' is an interpretation of a Maypole dance, and the theory that the Maypole is a relic of a Pagan reverence for sacred trees. Aesthetically it's inspired by classic English folk horror such as The Wicker Man, and the films of Ben Wheatley.”
