HISTORIAN Shares Haunting New Video For "Rain (The End Of Another Era)"
Historian is the ethereal brainchild of LA-native Chris Karman. Karman describes Historian's sound as "headphone music". That's precisely what it is: music for anyone who likes to get lost when they put a record on, who wants to be immersed. After his first record, Shelf Life, Karman converted his then studio project into a full-fledged band. With the help he fleshed out and alter the direction that Historian was headed. His sophomore release, Current, was crafted with production assistance from Be Hussey (Radar Brothers, Guides). Current also features strings from Quartetto Fantastico, whose members have recently worked with Father John Misty and Flying Lotus, among others.
With obvious nods to some of the great British album bands – Spiritualized, Radiohead and even Pink Floyd – Historian's music at times resembles a soundscape onto which Karman works increasingly wild brushstrokes. Critics have already warmed to Historian's unique sound. His music has been described as "both nightmarish and dreamlike" or as "sitting on the edge between creative containment and cathartic release". The 2nd video from Current, "Rain (The End of Another Era)" starts off as a hauntingly sparse piano ballad and slowly builds into a string filled epic.
