Opal Blue have released a warped montage of striking vintage film (old CCTV footage found at the bottom of the Mariana trench, the deepest point of the ocean). It’s something completely different and it works. Think the XX meets 2-step garage, and you’ve got “Taking My Love Away” is one. The track’s a smouldering blend of up-tempo electronica and recently championed by Radio 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova which is always a good look for the tastemaker audience.
The new single follows “Time Travel” released earlier this year from their sensational ‘She Goes Deep’ EP. The track reached the number one spot on Hype Machine and gained support from tastemaker sites Okay Player, Wonderland, Indie Shuffle and now About To Blow.
Check out the video below – loving the artistic direction from these guys.
