Hiatus Shares Blissful New Cut ‘Realism’

Udit Mahajan conjures the bewitching visuals...

Hiatus allows gentle transcendence to permeate his ambient-leaning electronics.

At times recalling Eno in his grasp of texture and tone, the way Hiatus – real name Cyrus Sharad – operates is remarkably distinctive.

Dipping into his Middle Eastern heritage, he's able to blur the lines between post-rave ambience and his own Iranian histories.

New song 'Realism' continues his journey, with Hiatus teasing out formal aspects to haul down the barriers, resulting in something dazzling and freedom.

There's an undeniable forward motion to his work, one that is reflected in the startling visuals.

We're able to bring you the video for 'Realism' before anyone else, and it's a gorgeous watch, with US based film maker Udit Mahajan taking you on a journey through inner and outer space.

“My intention wasn’t scientific accuracy,” says the film maker, “but evoking a sense of organic familiarity. I wanted to convey the idea that everything, wherever it exists, stems from the same materiality. From the stars in the sky, to the waves on the ocean or the lifeforms evolving beneath, we all contain the same fundamental particles and dance in the same cosmic story, with innumerable worlds revolving inside us."
