Magical realism pervades this breathlessly beautiful video and performance from Iran-via-London producer Cyrus Shahrad aka Hiatus. It’s a haunting slow burner that lightly crescendoes along borne by clever production, powerful strings, and a stunning vocal performance that evokes the more wistful and beatific side of late nineties house. Karim Kasseem’s accompanying video is a must see also. Both works combine to form a heartfelt depiction of a boy’s loss of his father and the result is uplifting to the point of transcendence.
