TOM And His Computer Reveals Arresting “Organ” Video

Crunchy electro and wide-eyed encounters with the ocean.

May 09, 2016

The video for "Organ," a new track from TOM And His Computer, the alias of Copenhagen producer and DJ Thomas Bertelsen, opens with a close-up of a fleshly, slowly spinning blob. Next, a grown man is born out of a milky bath. Upon coming to, the man finds that he's tethered by a long black rope by which he is dragged through woodlands and vast fields, all the way to the edge of the ocean. There, he finally breaks free. It is disturbing, kind of, but also arrestingly gorgeous—and fully befitting of the track, which was inspired by an old sci-fi film.

"‘Organ’ rides along on a crunchy old rhythm box while throwing in psychedelic organs and howling electronics," Bertelsen explained in an email to The FADER. "Fizzing guitars weave in and project a paranoid undertone. It was originally made as a bootleg of some old 1960s sci-fi soundtrack, but I fell in love with the vibe and decided to make a whole track out of it."

"Organ" is out now on Trentemøller's In My Room label.
