Blanco White has shared a new video for the haunting serenade, “Nocturne.” Northern Transmissions premiered the video, saying, “Nocturne signals the achievement of Blanco White in connecting Latin styles with English music, and uses this stylistic association to convey powerful, relatable and timeless themes.” The clip’s an ethereal gaze upon nature’s quiet beauty and its nearly eerie power, directed, filmed and edited by Javier Lara and starring Alejandro Albaladejo. The release precedes Blanco White’s return to the US this fall, including key plays in New York City, DC and LA. The full run is detailed below.
Upon its initial release, “Nocturne” quickly gathered international attention and dominated Spotify’s tastemaking playlists, including Acoustic Chill, Fresh Folk, Deep Dark Indie, New Music Friday and several more. Edwards says of the song, “For me, Nocturne is a very visual song. The lyrics are mostly descriptive and were drawn from memories and images of night that felt triggered by the chords and feel of the music when I first played it. Written late after not enough sleep, I wanted to communicate a feeling of delirium throughout the song whilst at the same time exploring the surreal clarity and otherworldly colours of night in a remote place.”
