Still on fire from his soulful hit "Take Me To Church,"
Irish sensation Hozier
has released the video for his track "Work Song." It's a deep, downtempo ballad with sparse instrumentation and understated musical accents. Religious undertones and lyrics speaking of an undying love captivate and create a pleasantly eerie mood.
The visuals are effectively simple; Hozier sings from the pulpit as a spellbound audience gazes intently and lovestruck couples dance to the hypnotizing sounds. The lighting is soft and sweeping, the set decidedly simple; the focus is expertly placed on the lyrics and the evocative dancing. Just as the song juxtaposes death with love, the video expresses vibrant movement and passion next to the humble garb of the dancers.
Hozier's eponymous debut album is available now on Itunes
. Check out the video for "Work Song" (above), and revisit Hozier's incredible duet with Annie Lennox
