Portable Uses Sign Language And A Gorgeous Natural Backdrop In New Music Video

Published on Thursday, July 14th 2016 10:10 pm

Portable, a/k/a Alan Abrahams, wants to reach you on a personal level. His new album features his given name for its title, as well as his own voice and piano playing. And his latest music video features the artist alone against a magnificent but intimidating natural backdrop, communicating the song’s lyrics in sign language directly toward the camera. Naturally, the video is directed by Abrahams himself.

“I decided to film ‘Say It’s Going To Change’ on the Spanish island of Lanzarote because of its volcanic terrain, and its desolate landscape,” Portable told THUMP, who premiered the video. “One gets a kind of sense of being on another planet, after some kind of war or global warming disaster, and I thought that fits perfectly with the theme of the song.”

Portable’s Alan Abrahams album is out 19th August. Pre-orders are available now.

A single for “Say It’s Going To Change,” featuring remixes from Deetron & Portable’s own Bodycode alias (featuring Ursula Rucker on vocals) will be available 22nd July.
