New Music: For Esmé – Make A Sound


For Esmé has teamed up with Puncture Design (the creatives behind WayHome) to take you on a curious and nostalgic trip back to that strange vibe of late night cable TV. Picture this—its 1979 and For Esmé is performing their new single ‘Make A Sound’ on late night television. The video recalls the nostalgia of live performances by Blondie or Depeche Mode.  Anyone who grew up recording TV shows on their VCRs will understand, and anyone who didn’t….just use your imagination. Remember staying up to catch something special airing on late night television? Maybe something you weren’t supposed to be seeing? Remember scrounging around for a VHS tape you could record it onto? So often I accidentally recorded over something else, or there were glitches in the tape. We’re taking you on a trip back to the days before youtube, where your only chance to hold onto an iconic TV moment was to record it yourself. This video I think represents a timelessness that we long for and I hope this prompts us all to enjoy a little more of “the moment”.
