The James Joyce-infused track is taken from his recent debut album, 'The Heat Death of My Hometown'.
Enigmatic Dublin DJ and producer Jimbo Jones (Jamie Mathews) has shared the video for 'Almost Post Coital'.
Filmed by Scott Dagg with vocals from Meadhbh Slattery, the song delves further into Mathews' exploration of gentrification, and its soul-destroying symptoms.
The visuals explore aerial shots of various locations around Dublin, emphasising Jamie's love of combining physics, perspective and art.
"A fractal is defined as a self similar geometrical object meaning that on all scales, the object appears to be the same," Jamie wrote about the beautifully shot video.
"It doesn't matter how far you zoom out, it will continue to exhibit the same features. Not only can you find fractals in nature such as your head of broccoli, a snowflake or a jagged coastline, but in man-made objects such as our cities, socio-economic structures or even a Jackson Pollock painting."
The track itself features snippets from James Joyces' Ulysses, which makes a bold artistic statement on Jamie's behalf while portraying a strong socio-political agenda.
The 25-year-old's day job involves working in oceanography for Maynooth University. A man of many talents; Mathews decided to utilise his passion for both music and physics to portray his frustration at the issue of skyrocketing rents and gentrification in Dublin, with The Heat Death of My Hometown emerging as the result. The album raised vital funds for grassroots organisation CATU (Community Action Tenants Union).
