Victoria three piece Croatia have a new vocalist and a new EP, titled Half Dreams on the way. The synth-pop three piece take heavy influence from 80’s era pop and electronic groups, and it shows (in a good way) with the first track to be released from the EP, Make Circles. Its full of popping synth lines and woozy production, complete with blue eyed soul vocal and instantly lovable melodies.
They’ve released an accompanying video, directed by Rob Willey, who says of it “The band first approached me with the idea of the opening shot: a cigarette burning in a kind of David Lynch style motel room. The original plan was to simply shoot various hands picking up the cigarette. We’d also shoot a few different images to overlay, including one of the band in the pink/blue light that I had set up. As soon as I saw the band in the light I became really excited about how vibrant it looked. We came up with a variety of ideas for shots on the fly as we were filming. During the editing process I wanted to cut and overlay the images together in a way that would really enhance the moodiness of the song.”
