All smooth, all love, Amo Amo bring polished pop, psychedelia and no lack of Southern California spirit to their track “Closer To You” — a love song that hinges on the atmosphere it creates. Watch above as the band gives image to one of the first singles off their upcoming album.
The project was directed by and stars Love Femme, who provides dreamy vocals and hippy spirit in her flowing dress and wavy movements. The multi-talented artist has also performed in New York’s Living Theatre: performance is nothing new. Joining her is a chorus of flowers and faces in the sand: the rest of Amo Amo giving voice to the SoCal beach that the video is set on. Parasailers glide by, a camper van is romped around in, and there’s even skinny dipping. The whole beachy dream in one clip.
Having already captured the attention of My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, who will produce the band’s debut record, this group is set on bringing jangling riffs and dreamy vocals to the stage. The message of desire may be simple, but the craftsmanship is anything but. This is clear when you watch the band perform the song live.
