British electronic duo Solomon Grey serve up a moving, dramatic reflection on addiction in their climactic video for stunning track ‘Twilight (Night Mix).
Understanding London-based duo Solomon Grey requires ditching the traditional definition of a band. The duo, aka Joe Wilson and Tom Kingston, can’t be pigeonholed into a singular genre or category. Instead, by creating gorgeous soundscapes across multiple genres they showcase their incredible talent as writers, producers and composers, minus the labels.
The cinematic shimmer to their music is no accident; the pair created the score of BBC / HBO’s ‘The Casual Vacancy’ and the tracks on the EP are all collaborations that stemmed from working on it. With each track included for release following popular demand from the viewing public, and collaborations with Mahaut Mondino and Essa, it’s clear Solomon Grey are becoming one of the UK’s most essential artists.
With their latest EP ‘Selected Features’ released today, the pair premiere the video for ‘Twillight’ with Wonderland, and, in the process, leave us all to reflect on the damaging complexities of addiction. Immerse yourself in the deep, swirling atmosphere and climactic crashing synths above.
To celebrate the release of the ‘Selected Features’ EP, Solomon Grey will play a live headline show at The Waiting Rooms on September 15th. Tickets are available here: https://tickets.songkick.com/events/24607379.
