Neo Noir with a Twist

Back to Blog

Tim Quackenbush posses up with Sam De Jong to tell a tale of two star-crossed lovers for Hudson Mohawke’s Very First Breath.

Beautifully shot, choreographed and cut together across misty sunrises, neon neo-noir streets and dark corners—the music video is an aesthetic treat to take in, delivers a sharp twist and leaves you with a slow exhale.

The song premiered at BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record in the World, and HudMo wanted it to open the album; “the album flows through the passage of the day and in my head, I see this song as the very beginning of the record. The sun just coming up. It was important this was the first track people hear,” via Pitchfork.

The album is cut and open to all June 16th.
