‘KH’ walks the line between lovelorn melancholia and empowerment, driven forward by Lynch’s hypnotic beat.
Dublin based musical project Echo's Bones have released an Ellias Grace-directed black-and-white video for their debut single, 'KH', featuring five couples interlinked on a beach.
Consisting of singer-songwriter Sara O'Loughlin, drummer Dylan Lynch, pianist/synth player Alex Lynch, violinist Róisín O'Connor and guitarist Pierfrancesco Dessi; the five-piece shared 'KH' on November 13th.
"I wrote KH in one sitting," O'Loughlin says of the track - recorded at Alfionn Studios by Chris Barry.
"It was one of those songs that just wanted to exist. I used it to work out how I felt about someone in my life. When I brought it to the band, Dylan put the beat to it and we all looked at each other like, ‘yep’. It’s our favourite song to play live and we can’t wait for people to hear it."
The resounding chorus, "you are what I want, but not what I need" circulates in the listener's mind long after the song ends, and the alt-rock witchy atmosphere of the band is explored further in the music video.
With cinematography by Albert Hooi and editing by Alex Lynch, 'KH' shows the band as passengers in the video, alongside the death of actor Liam Farrell and five couples holding hands.
The video and the song are both about desperately trying to let go of someone you love for the sake of self-growth, and the modern art-tinged visuals highlight the track's meaning to perfection.
