The Irish electronic art-pop duo of Joe Geaney and Laura Sheary AKA Kyoto Love Hotel have given us the first look at the video to our favourite song of theirs yet.
‘Machine’ is the second song from a forthcoming EP called Grow out in November and the song drops on August 7th officially.
The song’s gentle starting movements reach large proportions with big rushing synths and drum drops as Sheary’s vocals centre the track with intimate delivery.
The video by Donegal filmmaker Shaun Doogan and starring Aoife McCann is a rush too with epic and intimate visuals underscoring the lyrics.
“The repeated line ‘there’s water in my ears now’ is very literal. My ears were blocked for weeks after swimming in the sea and I felt really detached for that period of time – as though I was floating above my own body, watching it in action in this strange way. Parts of the song explore what it means to have a body, a mind, and the anxiety that can sometimes take hold when the two don’t connect. More often than not, it’s the sea that washes this anxiety away and reminds you of the beauty that exists in the unknowable”.Laura, Kyoto Love Hotel
Kyoto Love Hotel’s Geaney and Sheary grew up in the same town in Tipperary but they now they share music and ideas with one another from their respective homes in Cork and Belfast, as most artists have been forced to do due to the pandemic.
