Estère releases debut video – I Spy

Estère releases debut video – I Spy

Estère, the girl with the MPC she calls Lola, releases her debut music video I SPY today - 7th April 2014.

I SPY was released in December as a free download on Estère’s Soundcloud page and received extensive play on b-net radio stations across New Zealand.

Written in Estère's bedroom, on a sunny day in Newtown, I SPY is a song about greed and how the rich and powerful often disregard and take advantage of those who struggle.

The video is playfully reminiscent of a Wes Anderson film and features the macabre character of Greedy Man whom Estère spies on with her telescope. Just like in the song, the video expresses the themes and ideas in a creative story tale manner.

I Spy is one of 7 tracks off Estère's debut album that will be released as a free download off bandcamp on the 22nd of April, for a limited time only.

Estère produces all of her own songs with Lola, mostly at home in her pyjamas. She plays/records a mixture of bass, synth, drums, vocal harmonies, keyboard, whistles, claps, kazoo, desk tapping and anything else that might take her fancy then layers her production with pulsating rhythms and evocative melodies that adhere to her own unique genre of music, Electric Blue Witch hop.

With Lola by her side, Estère has played in cities and festivals throughout New Zealand, Australia, South Korea and Europe including Jeonju International Sori Festival, Ulsan World Music Festival, Aarhus International Music Festival and Melbournes Let Them Eat Cake.

ESTÈRE UPCOMING SHOW DATES
Thurs 10 April - Erykah Badu, Civic Theatre, Auckland
Sat 12 April - Weird Together, Galatos, Auckland
Sat 18 May - Erupt Festival, Taupo
