Today, Her has unveiled the live video for “Neighborhood” filmed at Studio La Fabrique in Paris. The video, directed by Rodrigue Huart, is part of the upcoming film “Are You Still Here” set for release this November.
“Neighborhood” is taken from Her’s critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album released earlier this year, which also features the band’s hit tracks, “We Choose,” “On & On” (feat. AnnenMayKantereit & Roméo Elvis) and “Icarus.” Listen to Her here.
While still in school, the half-German Victor Solf and the French Simon Carpentier met in 2007, bonded like long lost brothers, started making music together equally informed by old school soul a la Otis Redding and post-Yeezus hip-hop and formed Her in 2015. Success followed as the breakout “Five Minutes” soundtracked Apple’s “Shot on iPhone” campaign and eventually generated over 12 million Spotify streams. The duo released a pair of EPs Her Tape #1 and Her Tape #2, spawning fan favorites such as “Quite Like,” “Union,” “Her” and amassing over 20 million cumulative Spotify streams. Merging artfully seductive and provocative visuals and dreamy newer wave pop with a jazz undercurrent, the boys crisscrossed the globe in support of the EPs, including making waves stateside. In the middle of it all, unbeknownst to anyone but those closest to him, Simon lost a long, quiet and arduous battle with cancer in August 2017. With his friend’s spirit always close by, Victor worked on what would become the duo’s 2018 major label full-length debut, Her [Republic Records].
