LIFE IS BETTER BLONDE Releases Official Single & Cinematic, 1950’s Inspired Video Fires
Enigmatic Melbourne-based, electronic solo artist / producer LIFE IS BETTER BLONDE returns with a blissed-out new single and wonderfully cinematic video clip titled Fires, out now via Create/Control.
“Fires is an empty threat break up. The words are said, but the meaning isn't, both parties know that it's not for real” says LIFE IS BETTER BLONDE. The track premiered via the airwaves on triple j’s Home & Hosed show and the clip online via tastemakers Hilly Dilly. Consumed by a virtual reality set in a reimagined 1950s, a player’s longing for motherhood transcends the rules of the game. The stunning video was directed by Natalie Erika James and Ben Morgan, the team behind his earlier clips Mine and Follow Me.
The product of lost and re-discovered voice memos, late-night musings and discarded production scraps, LIFE IS BETTER BLONDE appeared suddenly in 2015 with the supremely glitchy contemporary R&B single Mine, accompanied by a fittingly bizarre music video in which a Japanese salaryman moonlights as an electric organ-player at an American-themed bar in Tokyo. Perhaps unsurprisingly this flamboyant entrance to the scene did not go unnoticed by some of the most influential ears in Australian music, picking up a triple j award for video clip of the year.
