We had already heard the stunning cinematic cut ‘Vorka’ from Hidden Orchestra‘s double A-side single ‘Vorka’ / ‘Spoken’ which drops this Monday September 10th.
Their somophore album, Archipelago, arrives a few weeks later, on October 1st, via Tru Thoughts.
‘Vorka’, named after Serbian filmmaker Slavo Vorkapic, has just been complimented with a video, directed by Lumen.
Speaking about the video, Hidden Orchestra’s lead member Joe Acheson said it “is a small tribute to the work of Vorkapic, whose pioneering work in the first half of the twentieth century made his name synonymous with the art of montage”. Acheson added that “the music for “Vorka” was originally created as a series of short episodes for a radio drama adaptation of a 1970’s Japanese sci-fi novel, and then combined into one track in a form of montage, so it felt fitting to reference Vorkapic in the track’s title.”
Here’s the video for ‘Vorka’.
