SOHN’s new video for ‘Signal’ stars Milla Jovovich

It's the first taster of SOHN's second album.
This time last week, SOHN shared his new track ‘Signal’; and now it has a video. Directed by and starring Milla Jovovich for her directorial debut, it was filmed in just one shot – check it out below.



“When I discovered SOHN, I immediately fell in love with his voice and music,” says Milla. “I literally had his album on repeat for weeks and soon found that I felt an incredibly visual connection to his music. As the music played, I kept seeing images in my head and it was really the first time that I felt the itch to direct. SOHN and I started talking about a month later and he sent me ‘Signal’ which completely bowled me over. The beauty and raw energy in the song, the harmonies… It’s just everything I love about music, all there in one song.



“When we spoke about his concept for a video, I knew exactly how I would shoot it and asked him to give me a chance to direct it. Once I started thinking about how to bring the original concept to life, I became obsessed with bringing projections into the mix. I felt like we could bring the viewer into the mind of the character I was portraying through the different projections, both behind me and on my body, that would be both emotional and visually exciting. I was able to book an amazing DP, my friend Vern Nobles, who I’d already worked with on four movies before this and I knew he would be able to bring my vision to life in the most gorgeous way. He got a few of his most trusted friends and colleagues to work on ‘Signal’ and what happened on the day was absolute magic.



“While we were shooting, one of the takes was so powerful and really told a story so well that SOHN knew we had the video for his song right then, on the day, totally live. This was something he had wanted right from our first conversations, to have this really “analog” feel and to somehow be able to shoot everything in one take. It is a testament to the focus and skill of our DP and crew that we were able to capture the soul of the song in such a seemingly effortless way; no cuts, no tricks. I am so excited that SOHN trusted me to visually bring his music to life and so proud that I was able to put the team together who made this video possible.”



‘Signal’ marks SOHN’s first new material since his debut album ‘Tremors’ in 2014.
