SOHN - Unplugged Video For 'Tempest', New Tour Dates Announced
SOHN : Unplugged Video For 'Tempest', New Tour Dates Announced
28th January 2014

Following a successful run of shows at the end of last year – including two sold-out debut London shows – SOHN has announced a Spring tour of the UK, Europe and North America. A full list of shows can be found below and tickets will be on sale on 31st January.

Recently, the London native stepped in front of the camera for the first time to perform a stunning unplugged rendition of ‘Tempest’, a new song that will feature on his impending debut album. The black and white clip was created by Austrian filmmaker and photographer Andreas Waldschuetz. Choosing the Casino Baumgarten in Vienna (SOHN’s adopted home) as the backdrop, Waldschuetz captures SOHN displaying his musical dexterity on a grand piano as his voice echoes around the lofty acoustics of the 19th Century ballroom.

Waldschuetz says, “I’ve known SOHN for a few years, and I wanted to capture  a performance that is as intimate and delicate as the track itself. My aim was to make it feel like you, the viewer, are standing in the same room with SOHN. My main inspiration comes from surrealism; I love to change perspectives of things, working with different tools and gadgets to destroy a picture. Everything you see in the video happened on set, there were no special effects added in post-production." 

You can watch the full video below, or on SOHN's website here.  German viewers can watch here.
