When I read that Geoffrey O’Connor had directed the new clip from Amaya Laucirica, I was a little intrigued. I never knew he directed clips as well as making those super romantic tunes.
But then, when I saw the clip, Geoffrey O’Connor’s name is the only one that came to mind. It’s full of those romanticised rainy images of cities (even if the majority of that ‘rain’ is actually caused by a car wash), and haze filled captures of both Amaya and her band performing to camera. The song itself also shows a different side of Amaya’s songwriting, this time veering less towards a traditional song structure and more so to creating a real soundtrack of mood. With those sliding single guitar notes and Amaya’s soft but commanding vocal, it really works.
‘Running Out Of Time’ is taken from Amaya’s third album Sway, which came out a couple of weeks ago.
Amaya is launching the album with a run of dates throughout May and June. Details here.
The super famous Geoffrey O’Connor is back with a new jam, ‘Jacqueline’. It’s a little more upbeat than his earlier solo stuff. It still manages to keep that super romantic vibe to it though.
You can stream it below, and if you dig and you happen to be over in NYC, check his out at CMJ alongside a whole heap of other Aussies.
‘Jacqueline’ is taken off Geoffrey‘s 2nd solo album, due out before the end of 2013.
This mini remix Ep was released at the end of last week and man, it is amazing. We posted about the Oliver Tank remix of Geoffrey O’Connor‘s Whatever Leads Me To You last week on our facebook. And then I heard the other remixes on this new ‘Yes Please’ Remix EP…and subsequently downloaded all the other remix EP’s Mr O’Connor put out late last year – yeah…they be THAT GOOD.
These are pretty spectacular. I really liked Geoffrey O’Connor’s LP from last year. He has such a distinctive 80’s influenced cinematic sound. And then these awesome beat makers have their nasty way with his work. And it fucking works!
Instead of streaming the Oliver Tank remix, I think the Guerre remix of Proud is my fave on the three track EP. If you dig though, make sure you grab all of the stuff from Mr O’Connor’s bandcamp page. We also got a remix of So Sorry by Melbourne’s Indian Summer DJs.
