Watch the video for new single 'Home'
13th March 2017
Joe Goddard today releases the video for brand new single, Home.
Featuring vocals from bright, new, Michigan born vocalist Daniel Wilson, this disco-sampling deep house banger is all about that long cab ride home through London after a night out clubbing.
Thanks to Pete Fowler’s brilliantly trippy animations, the journey starts here on earth (as it usually does), before we’re transported into a world of purple dinosaurs raving on clouds and floating DJ booths.
Joe says of the video “I got to work on it with my friend, and amazing artist, Pete Fowler. I first met Pete DJing at a psychedelic rave in Stoke Newington called 'Mentasm' playing 'The Four Horsemen' by Aphrodite’s Child and 'Cherry Red' by The Groundhogs about 14 years ago”
Home is taken from Joe’s forthcoming solo album Electric Lines. All about connections, the title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label.
Like Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie xx, Joe combines a thirst for experimentation, an instinctive understanding of the dancefloor and a love of left-of-centre pop music. Electric Lines confirms his place in the front rank of British producers.
Home follows previous singles Music Is The Answer and Lose Your Love and elsewhere on the album, Hot Chip bandmate Alexis Taylor features on the title track ‘Electric Lines’, while Michigan based singer Daniel Wilson makes an appearance on disco-sampling deep house track ‘Home’. Jess Mills graces the album’s two most irresistible pop songs, ‘Ordinary Madness’ and ‘Music Is the Answer’. Joe himself sings on a few tracks including the deeply personal ‘So Long’, a tender reflection on parenthood and mortality. Electric Lines treasure chest of styles also includes lustrous electronic soul (‘Lose Your Love’), rippling UK garage (‘Truth Is Light’) and shamanic psychedelic techno (‘Children’). The result is an album set to draw the map of 2017’s musical landscape and cement Joe Goddard as one of the UK’s most credible and well respected producers.
