Video: Ametsub "Lucent"
- Words: Jesse Sussman
Tokyo-based producer Ametsub has just unleashed a video for "Lucent" from his All Is Silence LP—a track from which we shared late last year. The clip's director, Dominic Plaza, has placed Ametsub's glitchy, low-key tune alongside an assemblage of brightly colored nature clips, routinely transitioning from barren wastelands to cracked and deserted fields. It's worth noting how cleverly in sync the clip and the video are, particularly evident when the two steadily build together in the clip's final minute; the rising tension of "Lucent" falls blissfully in sync with a sudden, gorgeous view of sun-drenched mountains.
