VIDEO NEWS: Delta Sleep Reveal Sixth Episode Of ‘Soft Sounds’ Series With ‘Three Ghosts’
Delta Sleep have revealed the sixth episode of their new video series Soft Sounds, a collection of unplugged songs filmed over four years in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Turkey, Dallas, Otto (TX) and Los Angeles.
The latest video is for Three Ghosts and was shot in Turkey, featuring local children and exploring growing old and living with Alzheimer’s disease.
“I wanted to spark feelings of serenity through a nostalgic Lord Of The Flies-esque depiction of a place on the water where kids rule everything” says vocalist and film maker Dev Yüceil.
“The title song talks about issues with mental health, and so it married very well with themes of memory, and more specifically forgetting. My grandfather Teo struggled with Alzeihmer’s disease for the last few years of his life, and so I wanted to use my memories to paint a picture of things that he might have missed, or things that he had seen but that his mind was unable to actively be present for. I wanted to weave Teo’s perspective into the story of the kids, and so I adapted a poem I found by Daniel Mark Extrom which beautifully describes the inner struggles that Alzheimer’s disease confronts you with.”
Delta Sleep will release a new video every Thursday until 23rd July 2020, culminating in an exclusive new song which has been recorded from the band’s homes in Brighton and Frome.
Soft Sounds is also going to be released via Big Scary Monsters on pressed-to-order vinyl for a limited time throughout the pre-order period, including collectable hand-numbered prints. Pre-order your copy HERE.
