Irish artist Talos (aka Eoin French) gives us a cinematic and surreal portrait of hedonism in new video “2AM.” Directed by Niall O’Brien, the video explores the ways we experience pleasure through our senses. The pairing between the slow-burning soundscape and slo-mo visuals amplify the haunting intensity of the track where Talos captures the euphoric state between reality and dream that we get caught in the art of hedonism. “I was stupid in the skies / Making water from wine, no less / Found out those heavy warnings” chants Talos. Watch below:

In regards to the song, Talos describes it as a “document of hedonism. It occurs in the dead of night across a peak of bliss, with bodies drenched in shadow and sweat, moving slowly together.”
