BOTW Single: San Zhi – Ice Light

Our Band Of The Week debuted the video to their new single at the beginning of this week. ‘Ice Light’ is an epic, arctic video full of emerald blue seas and bright white glaciers, punctuated by slo mo scenes of icy fragments. Soft-blurred shots of the duo echo the ’80s electric guit lines, which is a nice touch, and there’s a mysterious floating orb that appears occasionally. The song itself is as exquisite of the video – brooding, with a big chorus. The distinctive feature about San Zhi is that huge intervals between the pair’s vocals sort of wrap around the instrumental lines in a way that puts almost equal weight on melody and accompaniment, harmony and texture – this makes ‘Ice Light’ a particularly interesting listen.
