Kiwi duo Chores (Nicole Thomas & Paula Yeoman) have revealed the video for their latest single ‘Losing You’.
‘Losing You’ debuted on seven New Music Friday playlists on Spotify including NZ and Australia, Philippines and Singapore, clocking up tens of thousands of plays in its first week. It peaked at #12 in the New Zealand viral charts and has landed on some impressive playlists, including New Dance Beats and New Pop Sounds.
The song features Australian singer Jess Pollard (RÜFÜS) and showcases a new side to the Chores sound.
“Although typically a house act, their new single ‘Losing You’ find them throwing some variety into the mix and electing for a more electro-pop sound. Vocals on the tune come from Jess Pollard, whose dark and even-tempered sound balances out the vibrant and poppy production style”
- Run The Trap
“The electro-pop inspired tune is catchy-AF, featuring a silky smooth vocal melody courtesy of Jess Pollard, and an infectious summery groove that is so very easy to get into and really easy to enjoy”
Shot and directed in Bali by Kiwi writer, radio host and TV presenter Tim Lambourne the video features Indonesian tattoo artist and model Mayliza Anjelica @mayoanj as she navigates life, love and art in her adopted city of Bali.
It wraps up a highly successful year for the music-making duo (Thommy Simmons and Sam Saunders), whose feel-good, dance-floor fillers have helped to establish Chores as one of the most exciting new electronic acts south of the equator.
Their music has received widespread radio play on NZ’s tastemaker station George FM and in September, they were awarded ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ at the station’s inaugural Georgies.
See Chores live at Rhythm and Vines on December 31 and Homegrown on April 7.
