Video of the Moment #1547: Hozier

By on Saturday, 14th June 2014 at 10:00 am

The latest offering from Irish singer/songwriter Hozier is a new single called ‘Sedated’, a slicker, more pop-oriented track than ‘Take Me to Church’ or anything on his recent ‘From Eden’ EP. Hozier’s lyrics are as gritty as ever, but the organic blues guitar is notably missing from this track, replaced by clean keyboard melodies and gospel backing vocals.

The accompanying video is heavy on strategic shadows and lighting effects, including projection screens displaying the aforementioned coarse lyrics in a crisp, clear typeface. The track production and video styling here create an interesting juxtaposition with Hozier’s raw, visceral musicality, but it does leave me trepidatiously wondering which direction he might turn next.

For previous TGTF posts on Hozier, head this way.
