Nick Hakim has shared another single from his forthcoming album, following the lead track ‘Happen’. ‘Vertigo’, the first song to be recorded for COMETA, arrives with an accompanying video directed by Asli Baykal and shot on location in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Check it out below.
“The making of the video spanned over a transformative year, and our collaborative friendship with Nick became the center of the journey,” Baykal explained in a statement. “Initially, Nick showed me a video of a Tuxedomoon performance from Downtown 81. It was filmed in the studio where the camera was spinning in the middle.That idea gave life to the lyrics ‘Spinnin’, fast as hell can’t tell if it’s me or the room that’s moving.’ The room evolved into a moving house by a man who built it for his wife. Love is dizzying with multiple spins.”
COMETA comes out October 21 via ATO Records.
