Worakls has launched the intriguing official video for ‘Nikki’, the second single from his acclaimed debut album Orchestra.
Taken from the 2017 short film ‘Nikki Marianne’ by Guillaume Caramelle, for which Worakls composed the soundtrack, the video tells the tale of a modern romance and the multitude of conflicting emotions that comes with it. Set at a high school party, protagonist Peter watches on with confusion and horror as crush Nikki is seduced by an older man.
The second single released from the ten-track LP, ‘Nikki’ weaves together electronic and orchestral elements to create a powerful cinematic composition that increasingly ups the tension. With all the music featured on the album composed to be specifically played with an orchestra, the record was released in conjunction with a tour of the most prestigious venues in Europe, where Worakls performed alongside a 20-piece orchestra. He kicked off the ten-date sold out tour in Paris on 15th February, before rounding things off in France and Belgium on 25th and 26th April respectively.
Worakls, N’to and Joachim Pastor mark the fifth anniversary of their Hungry Music label with Hungry 5 – an extended compilation, detailing the French
collective’s journey through melody.
To celebrate the occasion, the trio are presenting a limited edition box set, equipped with high quality triple Vinyl and CD, which also features a 2018 rework of N’to’s cult-classic cut, Trauma, including Worakls’ cherished rendition, as well as a new remix by Joachim Pastor.
The close-knit alliance have embarked on a multi-date adventure throughout Europe, unveiling their Hungry Concerts concept, a live show consisting of bespoke versions of Hungry Music gems, both new and old.
Fresh off a sold-out date at Paris’ famed l’Olympia with an aftershow party at Palais de Tokyo and a successful appearance at Pleinvrees during Amsterdam Dance Event,, the trio are rounding off their journey with three final, intimate soirées in November (listed below).
