HAKEN are set to hit the road in North America later this month for their 10th Anniversary tour. In advance of that, the band have released a brand new animated video for the track ‘Lapse’, taken from last year’s “Affinity” album, and created by Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight.
The band comments: “’Lapse’ was one of the first tracks we wrote for ‘Affinity’. Now more than a year since the album’s release, it’s great to finally give this song a chance to stand out on its own, as it’s one of our favorites! Visually, we wanted to maintain a consistency with our videos for ‘Initiate’, ‘Earthrise’ and ‘The Endless Knot’, so we returned to Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight to complete the series. The video incorporates a 3D motion capture technique (previously used on Frost*’s ‘Numbers’ video) to tie in with ‘Affinity’‘s themes of artificial intelligence/consciousness.”
