Multi-million-selling electronic music pioneers Morcheeba have released a stunning video for their single ‘Gimme Your Love’ today. Directed by Prano Bailey-Bond, the video portrays Skye in a dizzying kaleidoscope of technicolor, her ethereal beauty exemplified by the sensational floral backdrop and billowing silk gowns. All the costumes for the video were specially designed and created by Skye, drawing inspiration from the seductive brooding landscape of this infectious synth-driven track.
Following 2010’s ‘Blood Like Lemonade’, ‘Head Up High’ has been two years in the crafting and demonstrates a new sense of movement. The beat master, Paul has explored the wonders of analogue synthesis, producing deeper and more irregular basslines hinting at post-dubstep productions, while Ross is responsible for the musical colour, tints and tones. Skye’s melodious vocal adds her signature ethereal texture to the tracks, complimenting the new bass sounds and adding atmosphere to a more uptempo paced album.
The single, ‘Gimme Your Love’, is an infectious synth-driven track which is lifted Skye-wards by a melting vocal and hooky chorus – the perfect introduction to the additive sounds of a new brooding landscape from these musical pioneers. Below, you can also stream an incredible dance remix from Leo Zero.
With a career spanning over 18 years, Morcheeba return with their 8th studio album – Head Up High due for release on October 14 via [PIAS] Recordings. The follow up to 2010’s Blood Like Lemonade sees the band enlist Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), James Petralli (White Denim), Rizzle Kicks, Ana Tijoux and Nature Boy highlighting the magnitude of their career and influence on a wide variety of artists old and new.
