Today, The Ninth Wave reveal the mesmeric new video for their latest single “Sometimes The Silence Is Sweeter.”

Directed by Ciaran Lyons, the stop motion visual features an enigmatic dancer on the streets of Glasgow performing Butoh, a form of Japanese performance art which is popularly known as “the dance of death and disease,” or “the dance of darkness.

The song described by frontman Haydn Park-Patterson as “an appreciation of being alone.” With its dark, post-punk undertone contrasting a mammoth pop hook, “Sometimes The Silence Is Sweeter” is the latest foray into The Ninth Wave’s unique, introspective universe.
