Video of the week: Tobacco – ‘Human Om’

TobaccoTobacco inhabits a strange world, and it’s not necessarily a world you’d want to inhabit… all the time anyway. 

Having solidified his aesthetic through a warped prism of twisted electronics and buzzing waveforms, Tobacco is set to release his fourth outing, Sweatbox Dynasty, via Ghostly International on 19 August. And he’s further whetted our collective appetite with ‘Human Om’.

The track takes a sludgy breakbeat and injects it with a trembling madness that serves as an unsettling but compelling expedition.  The tripy visuals and use of masks is apt for Tobacco who trades on his enigmatic identity, but joining him in the ‘Human Om’ clip is like peeking into the mind of the childcatcher after a heavy dose of mescaline. You’ll leave blissful and creeped out in equal measure.

Watch the clip for ‘Human Om‘ below.
