Doves & Ravens will launch their debut video single Wonder on Friday, 8 April 2016. The song is available all major platforms like Spotify and iTunes from 14 April 2016 onwards.
Wonder places itself at the emotional intersection between love and infatuation in the all-too-painful situation of a relationship that is and isn’t, where one can be seemingly both hot and cold to the other. The single was produced by Edwin Wong and written by Kenneth Qua, Edwin Wong, and Moses Jadon Wong.
The music video, featuring media personality Carla Dunareanu, is filmed almost entirely in first-person perspective, melding both the song’s story and the band’s melodic swagger in energetic sync. The video was directed and edited by Bryan James Kwa (BJK Productions).
“Everyone experiences self-doubt in the beginning of a relationship,” says Qua. “When we wrote the song it was about being bold even in the midst of all this self-doubt and just going for it. Who knows what might come out of it?”
Producing the song was about bringing together a “tight mesh of influences we were inspired by,” says Wong. “We were Inspired by Maroon 5’s pop sensibilities, Coldplay’s grand ambience and Mutemath’s hard-hitting energy. This is our attempt to mix genres and bend the rules of pop, rock and electronic music.”
