Song of the Day: Gidon Schocken – Sunn (feat. Afik Doari)

Born in the USA now residing in Tel Aviv, electronic artist GIDON SCHOCKEN has shared his track ‘Sunn’, featuring Afik Doari alongside its idiosyncratic music video.

The single has already racked up over 50,000 streams and he has received support from the likes of Music News, Essentially Pop and Neu Futur. Citing influences from acts such as Massive Attack, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, DJ Shadow, Lorn, and Throwing Snow, Schocken’s sound is reminiscent of the trip-hop beats of Portishead while Doari’s vocals verge on a parallel to the smokey breathings of Lana Del Ray.

Speaking of the track Schocken explains: ‘For me ‘Sunn’ is about getting stuck in behavioural loops – sometimes we don’t realize at first that we’re going through one of these, but eventually we can learn to detect them, move through and release ourselves from them. The song features lyrics and vocals by Afik Doari, I’ve always been a fan of her unique accent, vocal colour and style, she really brought the track together.

The video, directed by Stephan Stelman, centres around a girl sitting at a dining table with her parents. She loses herself for a few moments and is soon stuck in an ever-changing loop. Throughout this, she’s seen going into her own little world, where she begins to learn, discover and try to free herself.’

New Music Video: Late Bloomer – Yotam Mahler

Later Bloomer

Israeli singer & producer  YOTAM MAHLER has recently unveiled a video to his 90s soul-inspired/orchestral single, Late Bloomer, taken from his debut EP,  What Is Your Art?

The visual for his latest releases is a live performance with a string quartet and Yotam’s band- filmed in his home in Tel Aviv-Jaffa. The 19th century house near the Mediterranean Sea was originally designed for an European ambassador and later owned by a prize-winning Israeli painter. He describes his home as an inspiring place to live. Wall-to-wall paintings and high ceilings; a pastoral Middle Eastern castle in the city,“it feels like stepping into a museum”

It’s time to get those goosebumps going, listen to this stunning affair
