Nils Frahm reveals official video for 'Says' and announces UK & North American tour dates

After releasing his critically acclaimed new album Spaces with an exclusive release concert in New York end of 2013, Nils Frahm announces a full North American tour, Latitude Festival and Barbican shows. Known for his passionate approach to the piano which sees him perform with one hand on the grand or upright piano, the other on a Fender Rhodes or Juno synthesiser, Nils creates a unique combination of sound that is both hypnotic and intimate.

Nils is also excited to reveal the official music video for album track Says by visual artists Romain Assénat and Ana Silva. Romain previously submitted a ‘typewriter symphony’ for Nils’s Screws Reworked online project.

Listening to ‘Says’, we wanted to create a visual space fitting with the repeating form and the kind of echo present in this piece. We had the visual idea during a show of Nils in Germany, two days after, we’ve created a device for capturing this idea: a video-feedback with ink on glass captured in one take, in a very analogue way and without any post-production‘, he explains.
