WL//WH Video Of The Day: FAVOURS “Call Me”

Video Of The Day  Favours

Toronto based retro dreamy new wavers Alex Zen (Vocals +Guitar) & Jacq Andrade (Vocals + Synths), with the support of Mark Andrade (Guitar+Synths), Brendan Canning (Bass), and Kevin Correia (Drums), have released a time-travelling clip for the longing, nostalgic, and emotive new single “Call Me” from the upcoming EP “Left Behind”.

“Call Me” deals with confessional lyrics that dive into the melancholic, analytical, and regretful realizations one intuits, when confronted with the eerie silences from a slow drifting apart. “You don’t call me anymore.”

The 80s tinged surreal heavenly ballad concocts an intoxicating brew of twinkling icy-bright synth chords, meandering, wistful sparkling guitar melodies, steady mid-tempo drum beats, and comforting bassline throbs, into surreal bittersweet moods around the extraordinary vocal layers of sorrowful male croons, light female longings, and high breathless ecstasies to build a soothing caress of devastating malaise into a stripped-down 32GB finale of dying, alienating frequencies.

Confessional lyrics dive into the melancholic, analytical, and regretful realizations one intuits when confronted with the eerie silences from a slow drifting apart. “You don’t call me anymore.”

The sentimental Super 8 video, directed by Nadia Doss, builds a retro/futuristic wonderland using vintage electronics and creative set décor to explore the age-old Romantic dilemma of fading love. On point acting skills, strategic editing, and engaging camera angles draw the viewer into the daunting desires of a lost timeline, where an ailing relationship suffers at the hands of denial, individual growth, and modern technological blues.
