Published Sep 22, 2015While Jerusalem in My Heart recently released their album If He Dies, If If If If If If, they're now revisiting their eponymous collaboration with Suuns with a video for "In Touch."
The song is a sprawling, near-six-minute track in which Suuns' darkly futuristic style outweighs Jerusalem in My Heart's Arabic inclinations. It's a predominantly instrumental electronic number in which the minimal pulse is overlaid with some sparse, bluesy vocal lines. The accompanying video shows difficult-to-distinguish footage that has been altered with visual noise and features some cryptic phrases at the bottom of the screen.
"In a twist of good fortune, we all found ourselves in Beirut earlier this year. It seemed only natural for Charles-André [oderre] to film his reflections, the bands, and the vibe of this rare set of circumstances," the collaborators said in a statement. "With his discreet reel to reel projectors, we hardly noticed that a music video was in the works. Our memories of that time in Lebanon are a whirlwind of first impressions, late nights, good music, and good people. A barrage of colours and light, not unlike this video."
