Hen Ogledd shares music video for ‘Crimson Star’

The experimental electropop group has shared their music video for ‘Crimson Star’, the second single for their forthcoming album Free Humans.

The music video, directed by Deborah Bower, features the band performing the song with incredibly trippy visuals.

Guitarist and vocalist Richard Dawson notes,

“‘Crimson Star’ is a gentle, pungent pop song about a retired entertainer looking back on their adventures during the heyday of space tourism.”  

Recorded in Stockholm’s famous Atlantis Studios, where Swedish pop group ABBA recorded some of their greatest hits, ‘Crimson Star’ follows lead single ‘Trouble’ from their upcoming album Free Humans.

The album tackles “themes themes of love, friendship, Gaia theory, sewers, the nature of time, human stench, and the thrills of wild swimming”.

Hen Ogledd is founded by experimental folk artist Richard Dawson and avant-garde harpist Rhodri Davies in 2012, taking their name from the Welsh term for the region between Southern Scotland and Northern England.

Vocalist and electornic musician Dawn Bothwell joined the band for their 2016 live album Bronze. They recently signed to Domino Records’ Weird World imprint for their third album Mogic in 2018, welcoming vocalist Sally Pinklington into the band and changed their eccentric music style to pop-friendly songs.
