Warm Graves share new video for 'Cara'

Warm Graves share new video for 'Cara'. New album 'Ease' out now via Fuzz Club. Touring UK/EU in March/April


Leipzig-based project Warm Graves (the moniker of electronic composer Jonas Wehner) is today releasing a new video for ‘Cara’. The video arrives ahead of incoming UK/EU tour dates (including a run of shows with Lebanon Hanover) in support of Warm Graves’ newly released ‘Ease’ LP, out now on Fuzz Club Records. Set in a digitally-rendered dystopian world, the ‘Cara’ video is available to watch below.


On ‘Cara’, the latest ‘Ease’ single following ‘Neon’, ‘Sun Escape’, ‘Sound Sleeper' and ‘Nightfall/Daylight’, Wehner says: “This turned out to be the most personal song on the album - a continuing lesson I taught myself over time about toxic people that will join you when you shine but will be the first to smell when you’re weak and put you down. Be aware of those.” On the video, Wehner and film-maker Nicolai Hildebrandt add: “What started as a simple attempt to create a Scanning Effect turned into a Science Fiction short story addressing thoughts on ‘Weltflucht’ into virtual realities.”

 


Released last month, ‘Ease’ is the long-awaited follow-up to the band’s recently reissued 2014 debut, ‘Ships Will Come’. This seven-year gestation between the two albums brings with it a transformation in the creative process of Warm Graves, much like the human body exchanges its cells every seven years – our human bodies being both the same and wholly other. Where ‘Ships Will Come’ dealt in ethereal, dream-like atmospherics guided by an operatic choir, ‘Ease’ promises a collection of harsher, more experimental electronic works touching on dark ambient drone, austere coldwave and synthesised kosmische musik.


The transitions in this new album are more violent than before, expressing the difficult personal and social upheavals of its composition period. The choir is now absent and Wehner’s own voice assumes a more central, hypnotic stance. The soundscapes of the first album make way for something darker and a concentration of melody into a single voice – a voice no longer collective, but embodying both isolation and intimacy. “For me, ‘Ease’ always comes back to the idea of transformation. In this case, from struggle to ease, choirs to whispers, rush to patience. Those 7 years didn’t pass lightly. Life took a lot of turns and I had a lot to learn. It’s all in there compressed in 9 tracks.”
