SANNHET Prepare for U.S. Tour, premiere new music video “Fernbeds”

Having just returned from an extensive European jaunt, Brooklyn-based avant noir trio Sannhet are preparing to embark on a U.S. tour in the next two weeks, and, in anticipation of the tour, the band has unveiled a never-before-seen music video for the sprawling, expansive single “Fernbeds”. The song appears on the band’s most recent full-length “So Numb”, which was released last year via Profound Lore.

Director, editor, and Sannhet bassist AJ Annunziata commented:

“The video is about performance anxiety in the pursuit of validation.  The character, whose dream depicts his internal struggle between might and mercy, awakes from a stress-induced nightmare. In the grips of insomnia and anxiety, he medicates himself.  In his quest to obtain purpose through accomplishment, the weight of obligation smothers him, and he ultimately dies in his sleep.”

Gaffer – Daniel Lipski
Cast: Sara Perez, Vic Sin, Michael Berdan

The video stars Michael Berden, Sara Perez and Vic Sin.  Berden, who is one half of the band Uniform, also battles with anxiety disorder.  Annunziata said he selected Berden for this role as he knew he could evoke “the same sickness in him that I have felt,” said AJ.  He continued:

“The ferns represent nothingness. Purgatory, banality, the ultimate damnation for the ego-driven entity.

This storyline basically touches on my deepest fear which is dying in my sleep after a night of indulgence and having all the projects and obligations I started left undone. Letting everyone down. The dichotomy is that I create the pressures for myself and really the only person it would affect would be myself. The perfect twist of fate for the egomaniac.

New Yorkers work really fucking hard, whether you’re a full-time suit or in the arts, service, or whatever, we work so hard, far beyond our means or comfort, and in our leisure time we basically comatose ourselves. It becomes a dark circle.”

On this video, Sannhet continue to utilize intense visuals to further enhance the impact of the band. Visual aesthetics have played a significant part in their continued evolution, nowhere more so than in their live shows, with visuals triggered by the band as they perform.
