Following the release of his debut single, Swiss artist Pyrame releases \’Platonic\’ and reveals video out via HIFI/LOFI Records.
PYRAME is the musical project of David Naville – traveller and cosmic poet from Berlin. Influenced by French pop, catchy indietronica beats and a hint of disco, David uses his poetic lyrics to articulate his feelings about love, affection, relationships and liberation.
The artist’s new single ‘Platonic’ is the prequel to ‘Where Are We Now?’, depicting a relationship still in its infancy – uncomplicated and exciting. This youthful bliss is captured in the delivery of Franz Matthews’ (Moon Wave) vocals and the lush electronic percussion – driving forward the gentle indie melody.
The accompanying video was shot across the banlieues of Paris on the southeast side of the French capital. PYRAME poses as the outside observer and narrator, processing the fact that the couple can\’t seem to find each other as the video unfolds. Encounters that run into emptiness and recur too often make the idea of a common destiny absurd, and so things remain one thing above all else: platonic.
PYRAME\’s affinity for sociological and philosophical problems is ever present in his music, and further emphasised in the imagery, paying homage to ancient Greek art.
PYRAME has received early plaudits from tastemakers such as Nothing But Hope And Passion, Indie Berlin, Decoded Magazine, and Amy Lame on BBC 6 Music – support that will only grow with his new single and subsequent EP this summer.
