Visionary New Zealand producer
Estère shares new single
“Mad About Your Sea”
New album “Archetypes” out Jan 22nd
on Blue Riot Records
Imagine self-destructive romance as a confrontingly sparse mixture of cinematic piano and haunting vocals, and you’ll hear Estère’s new single, “Mad About Your Sea.” Sexy and sensuous, heart-wrenching and tender, evocative of summer love in foreign lands- listen to the harrowing new release streaming below:
What a stunning artist. The vocal tones from the moment they are introduced to the delicate orchestration just consume you. Far-reaching notes, emotionally enriched melodies and an arrangement that resonates such raw power.
This song pushes new production boundaries for Estère whilst exploring the archetype of dependency and desire. Estère says ‘this song is about being addicted to someone who is no good for you – and wanting to save that person, despite the hurt that they have caused you.’
Filmed in Mannheim, Germany, the stunning cinematography of the accompanying video expresses the essence of the song through shadow and languid, moody and textured shots. It’s a tantalising glimpse into a surreal yet relatable scenario.
Often likened to both Little Dragon and St Vincent, in 2019 Estère’s songwriting and producing prowess grabbed the attention of esteemed Massive Attack producer Stew Jackson. Together, they created the future forward throwback album, Archetypes, featuring Estère’s soaring vocals, body-moving R&B grooves, dense production and engrossing narratives.
