Late Sea peaks in artistic presentation with “Hunter” music video

New York’s Late Sea have completed a massive undertaking that involved nearly two years of solidification. Last Thursday, the art rock collective’s accompanying video for “Hunter” marked the penultimate piece of the Writer’s Trilogy EP, which saw release back in late December. The combined product proves a wholly unique visual/audio approach, each piece dedicated to an influential 20th century Jewish writer – “Ring the Bells” to Baruch Spinoza, “The Great White” to Paul Celan, and “Hunter” to Franz Kafka.

The perspective of “Hunter” is an arctic setting where a frozen woman (portrayed by Mina Nishimura) dances from the confines of an ice block. Her performance is interesting, beginning with rigid, frail movements that become increasingly graceful – like a trapped soul returning to reality – before the ice finally breaks. Amid the video’s metaphorical take is an ode to Kafka in the sincerest sense. Kafka was thought to have been cripplingly shy, as a result of being internally constricted, yet hungry to express his creativity. What ended up being expressed was clearly intelligent and, despite surpassing Kafka’s early death, would eventually resonate with millions.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
