Premiere: Kayex overcome fear in the video to Warrior Games
Arriving following national tours supporting Crooked Colours and SG Lewis, the duo continue to soar with their latest effort.
If you're yet to be acquainted, Kayex are a Sydney-based duo specialising in refined indie-electronica, often combining subtle melodies with bright hooks and slight grooves, incorporating the best bits of a multitude of genres and combining them into one, smooth and silky sound. Over the last twelve months or so, the duo have blossomed into an act to watch of kinds, with a trio of singles littering their 2018 amongst national support slots for SG Lewis and in 2019, they're doing much the same, releasing a new single - Warrior Games - off the back of a national run of shows with our favourite ex-locals, Crooked Colours. It's a more soft and subtle single when contrasted to much of their past work, focusing on whispering hooks and glistening vocal samples that twinkle above a production that incorporates a slight groove into a lush, melody-filled backing.
"We wrote Warrior Games while we were dealing with a few creative and personal obstacles," the duo said on the single on release. "When people listen to this song, we want them to feel as if they have no fear but complete confidence in their path, whatever that may be. Trust the process and have faith in the work you’ve put in." Today arrives the single's official video clip, which reinforces this theme through rather bright and bold visuals; laden with 80s-esque nostalgia. "The video is the same concept as song, overcoming fear," the pair explain. "The schoolboy finds a mysterious arcade machine at his doorstep and becomes the kung fu kid as he begins to play it. The kung fu kids alter ego represents the boy pushing his limits in training. The fitness performance sequence is also representative of setting challenges and pushing one's own personal limits. We shot the video all around Sydney and also used a green screen for the workout sequences. We sourced two authentic exercise bikes from the 60s too!"
