French Project The Memory Of Snow Debuts Moody Monochromic Video for “Bodies”

Suffering and coming

Consuming and sleeping

Embodiment Representation

This is who we are

But not quite

Human beings are a remarkable blend of individuality and unity. Our vulnerabilities, far from being weaknesses, reveal our greatest strengths, showcasing the resilience and creativity of the human spirit as it transcends challenges. Adversity serves as a wise teacher, guiding us to uncover the depths of our inner strength. By embracing our vulnerabilities, we embrace our wholeness.

The Memory of Snow’s new song Bodies, the opening track of their latest EP, introduces listeners to a dark, moody ambiance that is both haunting and hopeful. Drawing inspiration from iconic artists like Chelsea Wolfe, and Nine Inch Nails, Bodies is a drone-infused, minimalist industrial track.

The Memory Of Snow, the brainchild of French musician Albin Wagener (Overcast), delivers powerful messages with a distinctive musical direction. This project artfully combines new wave, dream pop, blues enriched with soul, and post-punk into a fresh sound, resonating with the deep-rooted influences of Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears, Ultravox, and Slowdive.

Bodies delves into the singularity and diversity of human beings, exploring physical flaws, disabilities, and the inherent strength within our vulnerabilities. It poignantly reminds us of our resilience in the face of adversity. The lyrics capture the multifaceted nature of existence, contrasting fragility and resilience, beauty and ugliness, health and disability, and highlighting the complexity and contradictions of our experiences.

In the monochromatic, self-directed video, we witness a montage of individuals in various states of vulnerability and power. Each person stands unflinching, strong in their presence, embodying the raw and diverse essence of human experience. The visuals weave together a story of resilience, capturing the complex interplay of strength and fragility that defines us all.

“The video for Bodies is worth the watch, as it truly captures the spirit of the song,” says Wagener. “I aim for the next album to be a comprehensive artistic work, with videos that genuinely complement the music, and Bodies achieves this.”

The Bodies EP also features a second track, Drought Is The New Normal. This dark, heavy piece tackles the pressing issue of climate change and its far-reaching impacts. Beyond environmental themes, the song explores the maelstrom of contemporary society, the fragmentation and polarity of social debates, and the distorting effects of social media. With its heavy guitars and slow, hypnotizing rhythm, the track offers a powerful commentary on modern life.
