Hiatus – Precious Little (Offical Video)

One of electronic music’s most creative and talented souls – Hiatus, gives us the rundown on his new music and inspiration behind the breathtaking new video that accompanies his new track. The video which incorporates family, mythology and intense landscapes shows just how diverse and creative Hiatus can be when getting a message across to listeners.

The idea for the Precious Little video came to the British-Iranian producer – real name Cyrus Shahrad – during an annual trip to Iran to visit relatives last year.

“Like many Iranians my dad is very nostalgic, and spends a lot of time walking around the streets where he grew up. I’m always happy to follow, as I love watching him soak up his surroundings. One morning I found myself filming from behind as he strolled down the road his mother still lives on, and the idea unfolded from there.” That scene – which opens the video – was the first of many filmed over the course of two weeks, snapshots of Iran covering many locations: from the downtown bazaar to leafy residential streets, and from recreational Alborz mountains trails to coast roads on the island retreat of Kish in the Persian Gulf.

“Dad was oblivious to the fact that he was being filmed ninety-nine percent of the time,” says Cyrus. “There were just two shots that I asked his cooperation for: the footage of him walking towards the Azadi Monument, a hugely iconic structure, and the scene where he walks through the graveyard at Behesht-e Zahra and sits at his father’s grave.”

Those scenes close the video with a sense of Iranian mythology, as though Cyrus’ father is a king from the ancient Persian epic The Shahnameh, returning from exile at the end of his life to pay tribute at his father’s grave. It’s a feeling complemented by the track itself – an instrumental elegy featuring Cyrus on piano alongside strings and stirring sub-bass.

Precious Little, which was first uploaded to Bandcamp in autumn 2014, has so far raised more than £2,000 for Medical Aid For Palestinians, a charity that provides humanitarian relief to citizens caught in a terrible crossfire in Gaza and beyond.

All proceeds from sales of the track go to Medical Aid For Palestinians, a charity providing humanitarian relief to civilians caught in a terrible crossfire. The track has raised more than £2000 since it was uploaded to Bandcamp last year. The link to download it is HERE
