Swooping down in the cover of night, ‘Darker’ is the new video from Shamir. Roll that name on your tongue and imprint it in your mind. Now, listen and of course, view.

Taken from his upcoming debut release Ratchet, Shamir has delivered the spiritual and brooding single that encompasses the potential in both his sound and vocals. With lyrics that prick like knives and a reflective tone, the video sees Shamir alone in the Joshua Tree desert, cooing magically as the world continues to spin. Directed by Anthony Sylvester, the clip uses high-flying drones to film the performance in it’s entirety, whirling around Shamir’s silhouette.

Ratchet is due Friday 15th May via XL Recordings / Remote Control.
