Telepathe released a new video for their single “Night’s Spell” which will be included in the track listing for their new album, Destroyer. Multi-instrumentalists Busy Gangnes and Melissa Livaudais, the music duo that makes up the band Telepathe, quit their day jobs to relocate to Los Angeles, recording the album in a few short and intense months. Making the album was a lengthy process for the duo, especially when they started recording the album from 2012.
Telepathe’s first EP, Farewell Forest, was released in 2006. In 2008, Telepathe worked on their debut album, Dance Mother, when they worked with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, bringing demos for songs and and supporting other acts, such as Julian Casablancas and Vampire Weekend, while headlining their own performances. This newest album that Telepathe will release, had some long-hard music perfection in the making. However, the duo are more than happy that the album will be released in August of this year. After all this hard work, you would think the group can get a much needed applause. Some of the songs on the album besides their single “Night’s Spell”, were co-produced with Lewis Pesacov and mixed by Matty Green. The new album is under their own recording label BZML, because they wanted to release the album when they were ready.
The video for “Night’s Spell” begins with people in body suits, but the theme surrounding the entire video is what it feels like to be in love for a minute. But for humans, we often project our ideals and desires onto someone, who will never measure up to our fantasy of what we want, a destructive curiosity of wanting to be capsized by a lover—wanting to lose control. The coreography for the video expresses the slow and fast pace of love and the burning desire that most people often face with wanting to find the one partner they wish to be with for the rest of their lives. As the song layers rippling sinewaves and vocal melodies, the screen is filled with shadowy doppelgangers, cloudy projections and other assorted glimmering visuals.
“We wanted the album to come out in the right way, and at the best time. We had attempted to release Destroyer a couple of times during the last two years, but the process was delayed by industry and label politics.” said Gangnes and Livaudias of Telepathe.
