Daniel Carlson - EKO
Artist Daniel CarlsonSong title EKO
Year 2014Genre(s) Alternative
New York based singer Daniel Carlson delivers an extraordinarily bizarre video for his new track 'EKO', which is set to feature on his upcoming album 'Me You You Me' due for release April 7th 2014 through Folkwit Records.
The unusual video opens with a suited up Carlson stood amid a starry backdrop. Throughout the rest of the video, various images are introduced including Sim-like animations of a police officer motioning traffic, a cockerel, a cat, a man and woman talking and some blue butterflies. It's a low-budget visual that is most probably meant to baffle you a little bit; as for the sound, it would be a haunting, melancholy number if it wasn't for the whimsical video. It has a sci-fi synth buzz about it that feels almost on repeat throughout as Carlson croons away in a slow, mournful fashion - towards that end, the instrumental repetition is almost hypnotising.
'Me You You Me' is the follow up album to the Chicago born singer's 2010 critically acclaimed debut offering 'Aviary Jackson'. With support from a variety of publications, it doesn't look like Carlson will be going unnoticed this year as he brings his unique brand of chilled out but haunting dream pop.
