Warmth radiates and peaks out of the cracks when Sanam Tiffany—aka Salmon—plays the banjo and croons delicately and poetically in “Like Milk And Honey”. That light and warmth is perfectly translated in the artist’s new video for that track that so wonderfully describes the feeling of losing yourself in the comfort of someone’s body. “Like Milk And Honey” is transporting: in the video we see Salmon walking through a desert, Mars like landscape, wearing a series of lace dresses and veils. Each frame telling a different side to a story that matches lyrics like “with cattleya locution/dripping from your lips” and that details “vermilion hues.” This video is tender and nostalgic and despite the harshness of the surrounding landscape, it is a video that shows a world you want to live in. Featuring the art direction of Skye Lane and direction of Olivia Soussan, “Like Milk And Honey,” is all of the mystery and romance of movies like Picnic At Hanging Rock, set to a soundtrack of otherworldly, experimental folk music.
“Like Milk And Honey,” comes from Salmon’s album Way Yonder Far, which is out now on Danger Collective Records.
