Kyoto Drive Breathe Video

Kyoto Drive

Kyoto Drive have just released the video for ‘Breathe’ from their new Mini-Album ‘The Approach’. The video was produced by the very talented Josh Partridge who has worked with such artists as Deaf Havana, Portia Conn, The City Calls and Sell Your Sky.

Adam Binder, Kyoto Drive told us, ““Breathe”, the song, is basically about sex, lets not skip around that fact. The song is written from the viewpoint of the boy, looking for some kind of sign that the girl is enjoying herself as much as he is. So it’s kind of a love song, kind of not, and no matter what guys say, we’ve all been there, we’ve all waited for that second of recognition from that girl that we REALLY liked. So following on from that we really wanted to do a boy/girl story style video, keep it in theme with the song, plus we’ve done the whole band performance video thing, we wanted to try something new. This is what Josh the director came up with…”

We had a listen, and here’s what we thought:

Shimmering guitars bustle into sight – and then the golden limbs of virile voices bound into view. Prepared.  Flashes of percussion intertwine with the sharpest swelters of aching guitars. The chorus oozes and gleams in the warmth of the sun … this is a fuggy pudding of hot frolicking fun.

And the words are so intelligent too, “ we sail the seas of sex in symmetry …”  Then there is no time to break away from the churning sounds, and whilst you are unprepared, this allows the glare of the guitars to spill out – and sweetly, so sweetly – the finale is yanked free. Free to fly,  hopeful into a sunny sky.  See it go there …
