Melbourne’s jade imagine have released a new single ‘Remote Control’ and announced news of their debut album to be called ‘Basic Love’ released through Courtney Barnette’s Milk! Records and Marathon Artists.
‘Remote Control’ swiftly follows the impressive single ‘Big Old House’ released last month and ups the ante: this is an exciting new band. The song has a seventies Euro synth tone exacerbated by singer Jade McInally’s almost icy distant but smooth tones, languid and cool.
According to McInally, ‘Remote Control’ is a song about the conflict between reality & escape and the two worlds we live in; dreaming and denial in a world of practicalities and productivity. It’s an exploration into synth territory. We wanted this track to be equal parts spooky and catchy, like taking a night-drive in a 1980’s sci-fi film. The film-clip begins as we are waking up into our dreamscape – a place between two worlds. Throughout the clip, ‘real life’ flashes through.
There is a gorgeously rich vintage synth sound to the song, Kraftwerk dissolved with a french chanteuse and Blondie. Tactile and velvety and hypnotising.
