Perth group, HWLS, consists of Ta-Ku and Kit Pop, and they released a new single along with a video for 005. It seems like each track by them in numerical order, just gets better. With a tender piano and gorgeous chords, 005 is less club tune like last years s/t EP, but still has everything you need on the floor.
Directed by Braden Lee from Create & Explore, this slick and beautiful video features a man and woman slo mo dancing through the city, who subsequently meet up and continue to the pulsating beat. From Braden Lee:
“Tokyo is this futuristic-dystopian metropolis rich in tradition and modernism. My goal was to merge these two themes. Throughout the story we follow two contemporary dancers to the famous Shibuya 5-way crossing. We also observe a mysterious masked figure. This ominous mask comes from a theatrical drama called “Noh” which the Japanese have been practicing since the 14th century. The actual mask you see here is over 400 yrs old and represents an angel – passed down through generations. Today, there’s just a handful left performing Noh as it solely depends on the disinterested youth to keep it alive”
I’m hoping this is a sign of another EP from HWLS. Hit their soundcloud to hear last years which includes 001 through 004.
