Enraptured By A Glass Sphere

This is a song for you to calm down your nerves (cuz of the manic Monday thing). UK electro-pop producer Chad Valley has recently dropped a 7-track follow-up, entitled Equatorial Ultravox,  whose soft melody will surely sound charming to your ears. Well, it's true that this is a very laid back album and it'd be quite easy to dismiss it on first listen. But after repeated playing, one starts to see there is more to this than meets the eye.

The first single from the EP is Now That I'm Real (How Does It Feel?). Beautifully shot in lush black and white in an intimate atmosphere and melancholy, the clip focuses on a young couple cuddling on the bed, before the girlfriend's obsession with all things circular leads to a slightly unnecessary squabble over a glass ball. Hit the skip to peep the visuals.
