UK Artist of the Week: Kenichi & The Sun

We’re feeling a little bit quirky at TVD HQ this week and what better way to celebrate that quirkiness than with an undeniably unique Artist of the Week. Kenichi & The Sun—aka Katrin Hahner—returns with her most dazzling offering yet.

Taken from her upcoming album WHITE FIRE, due for release on 3rd April 2020, Kenichi & The Sun’s latest single “Splendour” is everything that you could expect and more from the introspective art-pop artist. Combining immersive soundscapes with swirling synths and haunting vocals, “Splendour” is an effervescent beauty to behold from the offset.

To coincide with this dreamy single, Katrin has also provided a stunning video, directed by Adrian Künzel, that perfectly encapsulates Kenichi & The Sun witchy vibe. Think Björk meets Fever Ray. Talking about the video, Katrin explains, “The video for ‘Splendour’ depicts the devotion, love, sacredness and struggle between human beings and the forces that drive us apart or towards each other. It’s a look inside a person’s soul; profanity and sacredness, chaos and harmony, success and failure, human and divine, feminine and masculine. In the end, it’s all one. I wanted create an entity that does not exist alone, but only in togetherness, that reflects the light of feminist movements, of pop culture and art history, of theatre, of literature, poetry, and magical practices, but also the futuristic light of new, awakened society.”

If “Splendour” is anything to go by, we’re in for a real treat when WHITE FIRE drops—so watch this space!

“Splendour” is in stores now.
