Safe House follows on from 2017’s Reflections On A Dead Sea LP and acts as an accompaniment to Danny’s previous Metanoia release. It also continues his series of collaborations with players from the London Contemporary Orchestra.
The video for "Weight Of A Nation" was directed by Helga Fannon, whose work is renowned for its depictions of people and the fragility of life and the importance of childhood experiences on us as we grow older.
“My film is a dreamscape that suggests the human potential for metamorphosis, which is most manifest in the transition from child to adolescent. This is contrasted alongside cycles of sameness, of strangeness, and more linear processes of gradual growth. Mulhern's score is both impish and profound, playful and serious, just like childhood experiences and dreams themselves.”—Helga Fannon
We're told that Safe House sees Mulhern introduce more electronic and rhythmically driven offerings that dip toes into classic IDM, off-kilter downbeat electronica, and desolate ambiance.
