“Sun God” is the lead track from the Boston-based producer mmph aka Sae Heum Han. “Sun God” was taken from mmph’s upcoming EP Dear God and the oversaturated video features flora doused in an inkwell’s explosion. I typically dig exploding inkwell effects as long as I’m nowhere near them and if they’re virtual too. Regardless, Han mentions this about the upcoming EP, “Dear God was written in times filled with doubt and personal hardship. Experiencing personal tragedies and uncontrollable nature of our lives, writing the EP was the only way I knew how to cope and deal with these events. Simultaneously, attending school for music, you are constantly surrounded by criticism and anxiety. The love you have for the art is often overshadowed by the expectation of excellence and virtuosity. My personal love affair with music became one of my last priorities.
Writing this EP not only let me vent, but it also helped me fall in love with music all over again. Ironically, it was the last thing I sought but ended up becoming the medicine that I desperately needed.
The rose that’s represented in the album artwork describes it all: I received it on my birthday and pinned it to my bedroom wall and it became the first and the last thing I saw during my day when I started writing the EP. It was there when I learned of my mother’s illness, my friend’s tragedy, and when I met the love of my life. It went through all of it with me and it’s still there.”
