Exploring the temporal nature of the subconscious, LA-based producer / musician Maymind implores you to disconnect and allow the music to take over. The new track ‘Find You’, taken from the forthcoming album ‘June’ due later this year, is an intoxicating late-night groove, deluged in hazy melodies.
Maymind explains: “‘Find You’ is a halfway point from the past, as it sees me returning to the mic for the first time since my Spanish Prisoners days. Director Drew Hagelin and I shot this video on location in Joshua Tree, CA and Los Angeles, CA over the course of a few very hot days. Drew proposed using Joshua Tree as a location for part of the shoot without knowing that that was where I had recorded some of June, so there was nice serendipity there. The whole experience brought me back to my days of background acting work in New York City, which I did for about 7 years, appearing on Girls, Broad City, True Blood, and many other shows, though usually only blurry and in the background.”
He goes on to add: “The video explores themes of sleepwalking and the collective unconscious. Hagelin described the video as representing the idea of ‘what it might be like to interact with a representation of your unconscious self that only your subconscious could create. How recognizable would you be? Which version of yourself would have the most agency? How disturbing or funny or full of meaning or devoid of meaning would that experience be? Probably a combination of them all.’ Both Drew and I love things that are weird and just slightly off, and this sleepwalking character in Find You really let us explore those tendencies.”
