“It’s a reflection on the moment when you are choosing between staying or leaving and the underlying love that keeps you there. We liked that, it was simple and human and something we could all share experience in.” That’s what British dance trio Haelos say of their latest single ‘Separate Lives,’ which like much of their work, combines relatively sunny sounds with lyrics deeply embedded with imagery to create something a bit sinister and provocative.
The same could be said for the video that accompanies ‘Separate Lives.’ We follow the band as they walk through Hollywood, try their best to navigate LA freeways, and catch a glimpse of Seattle. The strange sense of alienation they seem to feel marries up with the music almost too perfectly.
