Electronic pop duo share new video ‘Dislocate’
“Future-forward production with a pop feeling” – Clash Magazine
“A thumping slice of synthesizer tropical-leaning pop music with touches of Balearia and sunny vista– Nialler 9
“Wonderfully atmospheric dance that’s perfect for those who prefer things to not be quite so bangin’.” – Electricity Club
Irish/Australian duo AGE have shared the beautiful new visuals for their infectious single ‘Dislocate’. Following from their triumphant debut earlier this year, the couple showcase their undeniable knack for writing irresistible pop hooks with retrocentric synth and impeccable production.
Gavin Dwight and Jen Cosgrave layer their dreamlike vocal harmonies over washes of electronic grooves and hypnotic beats. AGE co-produced the single with mixing engineer Russ Fawcus (Wild Beasts, Noah And The Whale) and it was mastered by Mandy Parnell (Jamie XX, The Knife).
“The video was a fluke” Dwight tells us, “We had no time to plan it. So Claire Littler who directed, just walked us around parks, pools and weeping willows in Hackney, shooting from the hip. We ended up with lots of stunning location footage but a video that didn’t quite fit together until Kat Hassan was brought in and animated all over it – suddenly it clicked. Kat’s an incredible illustrator and has done album artwork for the likes of Mercury nominee Laura Mulva – but this was her first time animating – she pretty much dislocated her wrist doing a huge job, pulling all nighters to deadline!”
After playing in various other bands, they’ve since split their time writing and recording from bedroom sessions in Clapton to overnight shifts at North London’s Tileyard studios (before they were kicked out to make way for Lily Allen). Despite forming last year and only having played a small number of warm-up shows, they recently supported Temper Trap and played the Radio X/AIM Awards. The band are currently in the studio working with producer Paddy Baird (brother of Two Door Cinema Club bassist, Kevin Baird), on their debut EP.
