Today sees Spector unveil the stunning video for ‘Kyoto Garden’, taken from their forthcoming second album. The video has been a collaborative process with creatives from all over the world for Topman’s Openshoot project.
The video is set to a new track taken from Spector’s upcoming second album. A more downbeat sound than fans are used to from the band, the glistening synths, hypnotic beat and layered, sweeping vocal perfectly leant themselves to visual interpretation. The accompanying video, directed by Never Ending Fun, is a rich, psychedelic journey through a cacophony of vibrant, rainforest shapes and colours providing a mesmerising visual accompaniment to the track.
“We’ve never been to Kyoto, this song isn’t really set in Kyoto but it seemed to take us and everyone we collaborated with to a similar headspace.” — Jed Cullen (guitar)
“Working with Never Ending Fun and Topman made for a different video experience – but through the directors’ vision and their response to the images generated by the public online we arrived at a visual that feels at one with the tranquillity of the song.” — Fred Macpherson (vocals)
