In Simeon Tennant’s video for Solvent ’s new single “Loss for Words” (from the recent new full-length Subject to Shift), a pair of romantically entwined shapes watch helplessly as their relationship dissolves. Tennant’s lo-fi computer animation fits perfectly with Solvent’s analog-synth pop melancholy, striking a touching balance between technology and emotion.
