Ahead of the release of debut album ‘Badminton’, Norwegian futuristic artist and producer LOKOY (aka Lasse Lokøy) shares new single ‘Both Eyes’ with fellow Norwegian Safario, with an accompanying video shot on a tiny propeller aeroplane.
Perfectly exemplifying Lokoy’s experimental songwriting and production, and putting Safario’s raw talent on full display, ‘Both Eyes’ was written, recorded and mixed in just eights hours in Lokoy’s home studio. Determined to make a “banger” one day prior to the album delivery deadline, the resulting track is a feisty two-minute attack on the senses sitting somewhere between Blur and Beastie Boys.
Out now on all download and streaming sites, ‘Both Eyes’ sets the tone for Lokoy’s album ‘Badminton’, slated for release on 22nd January 2021, via Lokoy (under exclusive license to Propeller Recordings). Check out the video for the single below…
