With a back beat that reminds one of The Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me Baby”, Art d’Ecco has created a song that has spawned an equally imaginative video. “I’ll Never Give You Up”, the second single from his debut album Day Fevers weaves a story from beginning to end. The video follows the artist’s progression from very masculine character into a very androgynous character. A classically feminine Marilyn Monroe type model leads Art d’Ecco from what he is to what he can be.
The 80’s techno video is inspired by David Lynch and Wizard of Oz, and also nods toward David Bowie, who is another inspiration to d’Ecco. The song and the video both have a dream-like quality that pulls you along and by the last line, you are left wondering: Have you been listening to a love song?
Day Fevers is out September 9th via YourFace Records. It is available for preorder now.
