To coincide with the release of the new album from REW, Olive Skinned, Silver Tongued Sirens Sing Swan Songs, we’re excited to present the hypnotic new music video for album track ‘Swan’s Melody’. The video is a perfect visual analogue of the song’s bittersweet charms. As the elegant movements of trapeze artists are mirrored and warped as if viewed through a kaleidoscope, the gravity-defying beauty of the song’s piano lines and Ryan Weber’s aching vocals are deepened in pathos. Check out the album and more from REW here.
On Olive Skinned, Silver Tongued Sirens Sing Swan Songs, the eclectic songcraft of REW (Ryan E. Weber) is refracted through the lens of a laptop, conveying the open-endedness, excitement and disconnection of post-modern living while maintaining the immediacy of pop. From the grand to the intimate, REW’s many shades blend beautifully within the one canvas thanks to Weber’s skilled hand. His compositional dexterity manages to invest the album’s dreaminess with a sense of drama. From shimmering, widescreen electronic pop to haunting, minimal ballads, REW traverses dizzyingly varied terrain across the album’s 30 minutes, crafting a vivid journey that demands repeat visits.
