Video: Holden "Renata"

Publish date:

Patently abstract, this black-and-white clip for the latest single from UK producer James Holden's forthcoming The Inheritors album was made solely from the artwork of Jack Featherstone, who also designed all of packaging for the LP and directed and animated this piece with the help of Will Samuel. Simple line drawings interplay with other shapes and doodles over beds of smudged charcoal and other grey material, almost making the video look like an animated modern art exhibit. Holden's "Renata" track blips, bubbles, and fizzes across its six-minute runtime, constantly driven by arpeggiating basslines and shuffling drum rhythms. The rest of The Inheritors will be released on June 17 via Border Community.
