After releasing a slew of warmly received singles and remixes, Sydney-based electronic producer and house DJ Self Tape has just unveiled tour dates and his mesmerising new single and accompanying video for ‘Hanging Over You’.
‘Hanging Over You’ takes cues from the likes of staple influences Leon Vynehall, Charles Murdochand Jamie XX. The dreamy electronic cut builds into a gradual crescendo, before dropping off halfway and picking back up again with its striking blend of meticulously arranged layers.
Shot and directed by Sam Bratby in Prince Alfred Park, Sydney with additional photography by Chris Grundy, the ambiguous video showcases a world of its own inhabited by two special humans. All the photos throughout the clip were shot on a Contax T2 Film Camera on 35mm Ilford HP5 Black & White Film.
Self Tape describes the motivation behind the track and clip for ‘Hanging Over You’:
“This story explores a friendship. A late night adventure through the streets of Sydney ending at sunrise. Two humans with a shared story against the rest of the world, living in a moment. The song evokes playfulness, solidarity, shared stories a warmth that is held together by a strong overarching emotion yearning. Two friends lost without each other in the world and in awe of each others unique nature and talents”.
To coincide with the release, Self Tape will play a handful of live shows in his native Australia and in the US with performances at Le Bain in New York City and at Goodbar, Sydney.
Previous releases have been strongly supported by triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi, Stoney Roads, Pilerats, Purple Sneakers and Spotify.
