Bloggers went crazy for East India Youth’s sound experiment “Heaven, How Long” earlier this year. Now William Doyle presents his first official video for “Looking For Someone”, taken from April’s Hostel EP.
The dizzying, schoolboy harmonies that open the track go hand in hand with video vertigo; Mr Doyle is seen floating up London’s Heron Tower with skewed camera angles and barf-inducing twists. The heavy layering of electronic sound, here reminiscent of Animal Collective, and ecclesial organ nicely compliments the slow-burning journey up to the heavens.
East India Youth will release his debut album on Stolen Recordings in early 2014.
