The Howl And The Hum 'Human Contact' by Ethan Graham
In the video for Human Contact, Ethan Graham explores a narrative that follows The Howl & The Hum’s lead singer, Sam, as he journeys through a derelict space where people have all been consumed by technology.
In what could be seen as a parallel universe, or dystopian future, people have been so affected that they no longer act or move like humans. Sam gives an engaging performance as he tries to resist the contorted movements of those around him, choreographed by Abdourahman Nije. The haunting track is fuelled by a slow-burning, propulsive beat which builds to a fiery crescendo.
“I wanted to explore the lyrics and their meaning to create a tangible world around them and use the ever-evolving track as a sort of cinematic score to the action. As Sam wanders through the narrow corridors, we begin to question if it’s all in his psyche – a part of his deteriorating mental health or if he’s slowing becoming one of them..."
