Premiere: Leyya Will Take You for a Ride with ‘Butter’
It doesn’t take much to get our hearts racing when spring has finally sprung and colors seem just a little bit brighter. In Leyya’s new video for “Butter,” the Austrian synth-pop duo capture fascination with the help of arrestingly minimalist visuals. Directed by Martina Trepczyk, the clip pits man vs. machine, human vs. nature, and vocalist Sophie against her bandmate Marco. As they face off against a starkly gorgeous landscape, it mimics the push and pull of “Butter”‘s deceptively catchy melody.
“This is no obsession, you’re just on my mind,” Sophie intones as smoothly as the song’s title, but at this rate, we might just be addicted. Leyya are giving their debut album Spanish Disco an international rerelease next week. Keep an eye out for the deluxe edition on May 20, and follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more.
