Video Premiere: Chat Noir – Blisters


Seven releases into their career, Chat Noir approach their third effort for London-based RareNoise Records with their trademark sense of musical curiosity.

In keeping with their boundless artistic ethos — a captivating melange of melodic electronica, downtempo, jazz and ambient soundscapes — their latest release, Hyperuranion, finds them elevating their sound to an even headier plateau. It should be noted that for this long-player they are joined on four songs by famed Norwegian jazz trumpeter/composer/producer Nils Petter Molvaer.

Today we’re pleased to world premiere the artful, visually stunning music video for Hyperuranion‘s opening track, “Blisters,” which was directed by the incredibly talented Lorenzo Musiu.

Here’s what the group had to say about the video:

“The design, shooting and editing of Chat Noir’s video ‘Blisters’ was inspired and influenced by a number of notions, chief among which the importance and centrality of women in our present reality, the ever growing interconnected nature of life and perception in the digital age and humanity’s aspiration towards a more holistic communion. All actresses in the video are connected to each other with wires — they commune, as if in prayer, to a God that may be seen as the feminine sum-total of their being there. The representation itself is in the form of a portrait, somewhere between Caravaggio and La Chapelle.”
