London 4-piece The Duke Spirit – Liela Moss (words, vocals and piano), Toby Butler (bass, guitars, synth and piano) Luke Ford (guitars) and Olly Betts (drums) – share this vividly gorgeous video (directed by Chris Waggott at Common Works) for ‘Blue & Yellow Light’, the convincingly mesmerizing first single lifted from their new album ‘KIN’ out November 12th.
Singer Liela Moss explains: “This track is a celebration of coincidence, it’s me enjoying the magic of how and who you meet in intimate places. Last year I spent a long time in some kind of hyper vigilant state, a kind of shocked mode, following the loss of someone very dear to me. I became watchful of the tiniest details. Everything was glowing, I was in love with life but had this menace, this sad shadow I was trying to shake off…
…The lyrics for this song stepped out and presented themselves, like the particles of light I was watching spread out upon the landscape, against the sky and across peoples faces. I’m writing about that mindful, innocent, adoring and sexual way you look at the world when you are overwhelmed”.
