Fresh off being added to the Groovin The Moo line-up in Bunbury, as well as notching over 600,000 streams on Spotify for the recent release ‘Something Like This’ (featuring FEELDS), 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist Ukiyo (aka Timothy Arnott) goes from strength to strength in the majestic offering ‘Go’, enlisting the enchanting vocals of Chymes.
‘Go’ from its inception provides the ultimate podium for the enthralling vocals of Chymes to take centre stage, following with a minimalistic approach in its arrangement through a divine piano and an eerie sample that strikes comparisons to Flume’s remix of Lorde’s ‘Royals’. We see this minimalistic approach accentuate even further as we move through the piece, which is evident in the tight percussion that evokes a strong ‘chill wave’ influence providing a carefree groove for the ‘head boppers’ to follow. A heavy synth presence emerges in the second half of ‘Go’ that intensifies the power within the track, that is matched through the carefully placed harmonies in Chymes’ offerings and an endearing bass-line transcending the track into another dimension.
Further to this entrancing piece is the accompanying music video for ‘Go’. Directed and shot by Kevin McGloughlin and creative direction/colouring from Brendan Canty, the video acts as the perfect visual representation of the emotional context that lies within the piece. Displaying images of the alps in Austria, the video matches the movements within the piece and heightens their significance through the utilisation of the kaleidoscope which spellbinds you instantly.
