Slovenian Avant-Garde/Experimental Folk Širom unveil the official video for “Grazes, Wrinkles, Drifts into Sleep” taken from new album “The Liquified Throne of Simplicity” out on April 08, 2022 via Glitterbeat Records. Watch the video through the YouTube player below:
The Slovenian “imaginary folk” trio’s most epic and transportive album yet. Powered by acoustic and often handmade instruments, these expansive compositions echo the borderless, collective spirit of groups like Don Cherry’s Organic Music Society and Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Širom multi-instrumentalist Samo Kutin tells us this about the video: “Last summer I made static videos in the Soča, Nadiža, Dragonja (Slovenia) and Zrmanja (Croatia) rivers. I am fascinated by underwater life and the changes created by the river’s flow. When we tried to combine the four different river videos with our song “Grazes, Wrinkles, Drifts into Sleep” we were surprised how well everything fit together.“
