Describing his sound as “Indie traditional electro math rock looped with a twist”, Galway’s producer Daithi unveils the (somehow) perfect video from 1996, to accompanying his new stunning single ‘Aeroplane’ (feat. Sinead White). The track is another dance gem lifted from his forthcoming EP ‘Holiday Home’, which is out 28 th April (on Bandcamp and May 1 st on Spotify).
Daithi explains: “Sinead and I wrote this song inspired by old Irish tv dramas from the 80s and 90s. True to the people of Ireland at the time, the characters in these shows all seem to have a hard time expressing their feelings, and we wanted to write a song that imagined what was going on in their heads, while they stumbled through talking to their love interest…
The video for the song uses footage from a short film that was shot in my home town Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare, in the 1990s. The video stars real locals from the area, and deals with the hardships of being a bachelor in rural Ireland. I had completely forget about it until I came across the tape in my parents’ house, and some of the footage is just incredible.”
The EP, was created using natural sounds and samples based in Irish culture.
