Perfectly matching the vibe of the track, Brisbane indie five-piece Fresco Kyoto reveal the visuals to their soaring electronic pop track “You Save Me’. Keeping the energy from start to finish, the captivating new video was directed by Brendan Schoenmaker (Greta Stanley, Sahara Beck).
Fresco Kyoto explained, “Making this video was an experience none of us will forget in a hurry…We were simply blown away at the sheer scale of the shoot upon entering the studio. The set was phenomenal, the lighting rigs were unlike anything we’ve ever seen, and the professionalism of the crew was beyond measure! How lucky we feel to have worked on this project with such a talented group.”
They continued, “We were extremely fortunate to have worked on this project with a director in Brendan Schoenmaker who from day one seemed to understand exactly what the song needed as if he’d written it himself. The shifts that the video makes tonally perfectly match corresponding shifts in the song. He was also able to extract a performance out of us that highlighted emotional aspects of the song we were not ourselves aware of. We are hoping viewers who have already heard the song experience similar realisations.”
On this new track, they illustrate how their songwriting has evolved over time, going from strength to strength as they refine their sound and aural personality with comparisons to Rufus Du Sol and Hayden James. It’s the ultimate anti-love song.
‘You Save Me’ was produced by the band’s own Toby Alexander and Cody McWaters between Hunting Ground Studios and Airlock Studios (owned by Powderfinger’s Ian Haug), where Cody has assumed the role of head engineer. Outside of his work with Fresco Kyoto, Cody has worked closely on releases for The Chats, King Stingray, Selfish Sons, and Osaka Punch, while Toby contributed string arrangements for Holy Holy’s ARIA nominated record, 'Hello My Beautiful World'.
