Jon Hopkins is a London-based electronic producer. His album, ‘Immunity’ has been shortlisted for this year’s Mercury Music Prize.
The album features the dusty techno track ‘Breathe This Air’ which has been reworked by Hopkins and now features the choral vocals of Purity Ring‘s Megan James.
The beautiful yet eerie video, directed by Anthony Dickenson, silently follows a story of two parallels. One of a young woman who is cleansing herself in a lake after suffering a loss, and one of a hunter who appears to be struggling during the aftermath of a car crash in which he has injured a deer.
The story lines unfold throughout the track until the abrupt ending. Watch below:
You can listen to the original ‘Breathe This Air’ on ‘Immunity’, which was released on 3 June 2013 via Domino Records.
