Hot Natured 'Benediction' by Samy Mosher

Hot Natured 'Benediction' by Samy Mosher

Jimmy Brown - 1st Aug 2014

Untitled, JJ Stereo's new music division is now up and running, and head of music video Natalie Arnett unveils the company's new signing Samy Mosher - who delivers this sun-scorched promo for Benediction by British/American electronic band Hot Natured.

Shot in California, Samy's video sees a bunch of kids hanging out in the desert taking their search for aimless fun up to the next level - by breaking into a house...

SAMY MOSHER

"Since hearing the track for the first time, ‘Benediction’ had gotten under my skin. It’s the type of track you can easily get lost in. My ambition was to create a piece of film which had that same hypnotic effect while exploring a loose narrative that captured a youthful and mischievous energy.

"The film follows these desert misfit kids across empty dawn landscapes, combining breathtaking Californian vistas with micro-portraits of a group of friends and a fragmented community. This link - the relationship between broken landscapes and broken people - is what brings the characters together. My hope was to capture imagery that portrayed a certain spontaneity and an authentic sense of fun."
