The clip is more like a mini-film than a standard music video. The visuals advance a powerful and emotionally evocative plot, spliced with footage of the band performing in subdued fashion. The video is epic and cinematic in scope, just like the song. Allow it to take you on a beautiful and anything-but-simple black and white journey, both visually and musically.

Soen – that’s drummer Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth, Amon Amarth), vocalist Joel Ekelöf (Willowtree), guitarist Joakim Platbarzdis & bassist Stefan Stenberg – are not concerned with the simple or the shallow; their musical journey takes an altogether more ambitious path, and the result is an expansive body of work, wrapped up in the stunning art of Mexican painter José Luis López Galván, that consistently challenges without being ‘clever-clever’ or tough to enjoy.
Produced by Platbarzdis, mixed by the legendary / Grammy Award-winning David Bottrill (Tool, Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, King Crimson, etc.) and mastered at Bob Ludwig’s Gateway set-up in the US by Adam Ayan, also a Grammy winner, ‘Tellurian’ sees Soen taking the approach of their ‘Cognitive’ debut (2012, Spinefarm Records) and pushing the boundaries in terms of musical scope, the whole thing shot through with the confidence of a band who have found their voice.
