Glaswegian The Ninth Wave have unveiled the visuals for their single ‘Sometimes the Silence Is Sweeter’, directed by Ciaran Lyons. The video accompanies the latest cut, produced by Dan Austin and described by frontman Haydn Park-Patterson as “an appreciation of being alone”.
An enigmatic dancer is portrayed on the streets of Glasgow, while performing Butoh, a form of Japanese art that’s known as the dance of darkness, if not “of death and disease”. Dark atmospheres interlace, combined with striking visuals which have caught the attention of Hedi Slimane, who shot frontman Haydn for a portrait series earlier this year, as well as Charles Jeffrey, who collaborated with the band for his “Loverboy” exhibition.
The Ninth Wave are currently on the road, supporting Spector at London’s The Dome tonight, then playing slots in Aberdeen, Manchester and their hometown Glasgow before the festive period.
