[Premiere] AKA George shares DIY music video for “i want you”

London-based multi-instrumentalist AKA George’s new single “i want you” rumbles with understated intensity. Handclaps keep the beat while a sticky drum beat keeps the song in forward motion. All the while, AKA George’s voice grows from a whisper to an undeniable shout.

Talking about the single, AKA George elaborates, “sometimes I get in a dark mood where I feel deeply unsatisfied. i want you is about a deep hunger. It’s about being hidden away and emerging from that isolation with an almost ruthless need and the freedom to express that need without having to conform to social niceties.”

The song is accompanied by a DIY music video, which FAULT premieres today.

AKA George shares about the clip: “I wanted this video to be dark, like the song. So I picked up my mate Chris and we drove into the woods at midnight. We flooded the forest with the red light, using red gels on the car headlights. We thought we were really clever until we finished filming, packed up our stuff and realised the car wouldn’t start. We had flattened the battery. 3 hours later I’m making it much worse by trying to explain to Daniel from Green Flag why we’re in the middle of the woods with a camcorder, whilst frankly dressed like a gimp. He just shook his head and said “it’s been a weird few days.” Anyway thanks for the jump start Daniel, this one’s for you.”
