Melancholic Synth Project Hermidgets Debuts Mysterious Video for “A Flaw”

Hermidgets announces his forthcoming album out this autumn, with a strange, melancholic, danceable video for “A Flaw”.

“As soon as my debut is ready I quickly started writing new music, and it flowed in a spontaneous and natural way. In a short time, I wrote some new songs, melancholic as ever but characterized by uptempo and meager arrangements”.

“A Flaw” is indicative of this new necessity. The rhythm is sustained by a bass drum, snare and a claustrophobic breathe, just a few lines of analog synth sustain the melodic line.

On the video, the project’s mysterious leader explains:

“The video is an error, a wrong composition of a frantic dance for a disinterested spectator. Like in the others video the author appears in no distinctive way. I protect myself from overexposure, this is another way to be in my video without truly being there.”

Watch the video for “A Flaw” below:

“A Flaw” is the first single from Hermidgets’s forthcoming new record, the follow-up to 2020’s album, The Mire. The song is mixed by Matteo Sand who works with Sananda Matreya and mastered by Kevin Paul who worked with Bowie, Depeche Mode, and Nick Cave.
