Watch The Cosmic Video For Why? Tune 'The Barely Blur'Wednesday 17th May, 2017 1:15PM
Berkeley-based crew WHY? have dropped a new video for their track 'The Barely Blur', the introspective closing song from their recently released, home-recorded album Moh Lhean. Conceived by frontman Yoni Wolf, the clip takes viewers on a cosmic trip that starts with slow-motion joggers running through a field, who then expand into the vivid, exploding colours of distant galaxies. Talking to DIY about the clip, Wolf explains:
"'The Barely Blur' was one of the last songs I wrote for Moh Lhean. It embodies a frustration, in a way, about how incomplete our understanding, even of our own experience, as conscious matter in this universe. That said, itís not dark really, but more filled with inquisitive wonder.
"Idea for the video came to me in my sleep about 6 month ago. The initial idea was just to shoot close ups of runners in a marathon in super slow motion. The idea developed through conversations between myself and Scott, and then further, of course, throughout the process of making the video, as it began to take shape."
