Hyd Shares Video for New Caroline Polachek–Produced Song “Afar”: Watch


Hyd, the moniker of interdisciplinary artist and PC Music associate Hayden Dunham, has shared a new song called “Afar.” Caroline Polachek produced and co-wrote the track. “Afar” also comes with a music video directed by Rose Schlossberg and Hyd, in which the artist bathes in hot steam clouds. Check it out below.

“Afar” was written during a period in which Hyd temporarily lost their eyesight. “Caroline and I started ‘Afar’ in Santa Monica and finished it at her house in Brooklyn. The productions are distilled to feel like a vapor den,” explained Hyd in a statement. “The voice in the song is meant to emanate from an imagined guardian—a presence without a body, an angel next to me. My vision was gone and I had to steam my eyes regularly with hot water vapor, which was the predominant element of that time for me and this song.”

Hyd released their self-titled EP in November 2021. This Saturday, July 16, Hyd will perform at Pitchfork Music Festival.
