We premiere the new video from Daniel Avery for his new EP landing on Erol Alkan's Phantasy label
Today, Dazed premieres the new video for Daniel Avery's (formerly Stopmakingme / of Kill 'Em All fame) latest single 'Taste' out on Erol Alkan's cult Phantasy label. This summer sees him playing the likes of Oya Festival in Oslo with the likes of Chromatics, Joy Orbison, Best Coast, Foals and Factory Floor, as well as dates across the UK.
Shot by Daniel Brereton of Connan Mockasin / Kindness / Late of the Pier / Django Django's previous videos - here's what Erol had to say about the new vid:
"Daniel Brereton previously produced Connan Mockasin's 'Forever Dolphin Love' video for us, and it was one of those rare occasions when I was completely floored after seeing it, so it seemed natural for us to work with him again.
Both Daniels and I met up one afternoon and spoke about some of our favourite videos and any ideas that we had for a visual connection to 'Taste', and Daniel B took it far further than we had ever imagined - we are absolutely delighted with what he's come up with. He managed to capture a visual balance to what I personally feel the music holds, in the melody, a feeling of nature gone wrong, and that general essence of it still being outsider music.
Daniel Avery's next EP is complete and ready for an August release on Phantasy, and it's already a huge step forward from this one. He's really coming into his own as an artist as well as being a jealousy-inducingly great DJ."
Catch Daniel Avery playing at Oya Festival in Oslo this August 2012.
