Indie-rock quartet Newton Circus will be releasing two videos of recent singles “Twilight” and “Love You Like That” on 30 April 2016.
“Twilight” and “Love You Like That” are milestones for the band, as they forge their way towards the completion of their second album, to be released sometime in the 3rd quarter this year, with more details set to be announced by the band at the screening session. The songs were penned by Kenneth Ong, and produced by Colin Ong, and Kevin Foo of Beep Studios.
Both songs flesh delicate emotional landscapes against the backdrop of the soaring instrumentals Newton Circus is known for. Conceptually, videos for both songs were scored to short films by Kalhil “KJ” Adames (USA) and Awe Pictures (Portugal) respectively, with the filmmakers keenly involved and supportive of the band’s move to score their work with the songs. David Tan edited the video for “Twilight”, while Colin Ong was the editor for “Love You Like That”.
Said Newton Circus frontman and lyricist Kenneth Ong, “in crafting the songs and a unique visual narrative around them, we chose both films as they exuded the feeling of holding someone dear to our hearts.”
Said Newton Circus band member David Tan, “we discovered a second story in the process (of working with the films). sometimes we get so caught up with the whirl of life that we forget who we really are on the inside – ephemeral, vulnerable.”
