“You see various characters acting out not only their use but also we see hints of the things that cause them to need this escape,” the band says of the video. “The figures appearing in a black void, searching for meaning in their solitude, reaching out for a hand, only to be free when they accept that they, themselves are all they need.”
So Numb, Sannhet’s third full-length, is a 9-song compendium evoking unique personas of drug users. Descending into the melancholia of addiction, the album’s emotive soundscapes showcase what Sannhet does best: moving between extremes to create a dynamic that feels both climactic and anticipatory, dramatic and comfortably calm. Recorded and produced by Peter Katis (known for his work with Mercury Rev, Interpol, the National, and Oneida among others), So Numb denotes the band’s most melodic sound to date.
Sannhet have always been a bit of an anomaly in their own craft. Since 2010, the trio’s has effortlessly toyed with juxtaposition—heavy and light, cinematic and intimate, dense yet minimal. With So Numb, Sannhet builds a world from a grain of sand, crafting complex narratives with mere sound. Since their inception, Sannhet toured the United States several times over with bands such as Liturgy, King Woman, A Place To Bury Strangers and more, and have played highly coveted sets at Basilica Sounscape, Northside Festival, Hopscotch Festival, Tinnitus Music Series, NXNE and so on.
