Australian duo Venus II, the dream-team pairing of Jarrad Brown (Eagle & The Worm/Dorsal Fins) and Ryan Grieve (Canyons), have released the official video for their new single I Want U 4 Myself. The single comes from their recently released debut album Inside Your Sun, “full of dream pop sounds that every lover of the genre should have” (Zone Nights).
The otherworldly music video shot by Young Black Youth, was filmed at some of the South Australian locations used in the iconic Australian film Picnic At Hanging Rock, which also inspired the clip. The video for I Want U 4 Myself explores the hypnotic dub feel of the track with a mixture of ‘70s and ‘90s-inspired imagery, set in a cult-like world populated by a powerful all-female cast.
“Sparring frenetic synths against an endless procession of euphoric hooks, with more than a few side-line spins towards the acid-holes of that hedonistic U.K. dance era” – Rolling Stone Australia (about Inside Your Sun)
If you’ve missed Venus II touring with GL in Sydney and Melbourne catch them at their final show.
“Starting on more structurally sound pieces before melting into a trippy psychedelic experience, it was impossible not to be craving more once the set was done” – Semplesize
