“The new song is cool and soothing, with satiny echoes and ’80s-inspired synths reminiscent of M83.”
“In their time off, the duo learned to hit the metaphorical nail on the head of pop, grasping the perfect balance of dreamy retro-vibes with powerful vocals.”
“‘I Know’ is the perfect pick-me-up song for those hard times in your life.”
Matthew Dear’s remix of Take Me is available now here.
“Aly & AJ return with the Matthew Dear‘s remix of “Take Me,” their first new track in 10 years. The futuristic sounding piece showcases intriguing harmonic progressions as well as a striking bass line. With nostalgic vocals…, “Take Me” combines the new with the old in an alluring, tasteful style.
Matthew Dear is known for his signature mellow, yet energy infused sound. With tracks such as “Bad Ones” featuring Tegan and Sara, the United States native cultivates an indie electronic collection of pieces that flaunt a new wave of creative production. With his latest remix, Matthew Dear brings his own flavor to the table, a refreshing taste that still maintains a vintage feel.”
Aly & AJ have delivered the bewitching visuals for the Take Me music video, crafted by visionary director and screenwriter Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Phillip, Queen of Earth), with cinematography from the talented Sean Price Williams (Good Time). With the streets of Los Angeles as the backdrop, the video features appearances from actresses Amanda Crew (Silicon Valley) and Madeline Zima (Twin Peaks), and actor Josh Pence (La La Land) who fall prey to the musical duo’s blood lust.
The sisters added, “Staged and paced by Alex Ross Perry (director) and Sean Price Williams (cinematographer) in a midcentury home at odds with vampiric life, both pushed the video into the genre territory of our 80’s dreams as funneled through the minds of Chris Horan (stylist) and Elissa Ruminer (hair and makeup) with inspiration and armor from the clothing of Harris Reed.”
Director Alex Ross Perry shares the story behind the visuals for “Take Me”, noting – “When Aly&AJ reached out to me, blind, on Instagram, I assumed there had been some mistake. Nobody I had ever met before could possibly want to work with Sean Price Williams and myself badly enough that they would fly us to Los Angeles and agree with our insane idea to shoot a music video on standard 16mm film. Turns out, this was just a sign of their collaborative nature and the beginning of a process that creatively volleyed back and forth, much like my back and forth flights across the country.”
He continues – “The opportunity to shoot in Los Angeles for the first time, in a wonderful location that I could never dream of having access to (and just up the road from the house where Sharon Tate was murdered) was one I couldn’t imagine passing up. Shooting a vampire themed video is difficult for somebody like myself who ceases to function after eleven p.m. but the enthusiasm and positivity of Aly & AJ motivated the entire crew and resulted in a video full of images I am incredibly proud of.”
