NEW LOVE - a collaboration with Dream Giant
Here's the music video for 'New Love'. The beautiful neon-filled art direction is by Jylle Navarro.
This is the second single from Dream Giant's album, 'A Different Light'. The album has been well received with sparkling reviews and the support of BBC DJs.
'Lovely sound for this time of year' - Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
'Some lovely songs on this album' - Gary Crowley, BBC Radio London
'An auteur of kaleidoscopic neo-psych' - Shindig! Magazine
I worked with Harry Dream on the album over a couple of years when we were living in Rainbow House. So, basically it was recorded in a bedroom. Harry plays every instrument on the album(!) apart from drums and a bit of bass. I contributed vocals to the record, and in the live line up I also play keys. New Love was probably the most collaborative track and I was involved with the songwriting process. I'm really proud of it. The record was produced by Ben Thackery (My Bloody Valentine/Rachel Zeffira).
The video was recorded in a studio in Hackney, usually used to shoot erotica. There were some pretty distracting photos on the walls in the space where we were filming. I had an amazing time getting covered in neon paint and channeling the neon Goddess of rave.
The album can be bought (and also streamed) from Bandcamp: https://dreamgiant.bandcamp.com/album/a-different-light
