SOM (Caspian, Etc.) Share Video For Holy Fawn’s Remix Of “Awake // Sedate”

SOM (Caspian, ex-Junius, etc.) have shared a new video for Holy Fawn’s remix of their song “Awake // Sedate.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Awake,” which will be released tomorrow (March 5). Holy Fawn’s Ryan Osterman commented:

“We met when we got to tour with Som on the O’Brother tour and just instantly hit it off. We were enamored with their kindness and with how utterly massive these guys were able to sound live. When I got the opportunity to remix one of the new songs I instantly wanted to jump on it. I heard ‘Awake // Sedate’ and immediately had gears turning with how I might approach the song in a way that (hopefully) honored it while giving it some sort of HF gloom or what have you. I felt this kind of emotional paralysis / Cotard’s syndrome when Will was singing and just wanted to create something to capture that isolation.”

SOM (Caspian, Etc.) Premiere “Youth // Decay” Video

SOM (Caspian, ex-Junius, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Youth // Decay.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Awake,” which will be released on March 5.

Will Benoit told Revolver the following:

“Before the first SOM record was done, Mike [Repasch-Nieves] and I were both feeling creatively and musically adrift. We got together for a couple days, recording ambient guitar and synths over glitchy beats in an attempt to change things up. Two years later when Mike and Joel joined the band, I edited some of Mike‘s demo parts from that session to form the main melodies in ‘Youth // Decay.’ I arranged the chords and vocals, and brought it to the group. During quarantine, we all passed the demo back and forth. Slowly, this minimal, sparse piece of music grew into a dynamic, crushing song that is also the first track we finished as a five-piece.”

Repasch-Nieves added:

“Similarly, the video started as a short film that my friend and long-time colleague, director Adam Patch, had been working on. As soon as we finished the song, I knew it would be perfect for this, lyrically and thematically. We shared the song and footage with editor Samia Zaidi, who also directed our recent video for ‘Awake // Sedate.’ She took it and really brought everything into focus. It was quite serendipitous how it all came together in this way.”
