Video of the Week: Shlohmo – Couch (Soosh remix)

It’s the second entry for Shlohmo into the video of the week, but his image-rich sounds just seem to inspire some great visual pieces. This time it’s a new official video for Soosh’s remix of Couch on the upcoming re-release of the Shlo-Fi EP.

This is a minimal film for a relatively minimal song. The camera pans incredibly slowly over the prone body of a girl in a mask, and the monochrome suits the ghostly tune to a tee. What really impresses about this video is the accumulation of minute visual effects in line with every subtle shift in the instrumentation, a swelling at the deep bass resonance, a sideways stretch on the bassline and horizontal lines blurring the image on the ethereal rising synthline. As the effects accumulate they begin to warp the image in a recognisable looped pattern, but the effects are always subtle enough to impact quietly rather than to take over the whole video. It closes with the girl’s eyes closing as if to sleep, ending a remarkably understated but undeniably beautiful video.
