Duncan Lloyd (Maximo Park / Nano Kino) has announced a new solo album entitled Outside Notion set to drop on May 24 via Afternoon In Bed Records. A video for the first single from the record has been released. “Young Dreams” contains loose mannered guitars and violins while unfolding a thrilling chaos of multi-dimensional layers of rhythm lines.
Of the single, Lloyd comments; “Young Dreams is a song about temptation and being taken in with the idea of a place that isn’t all it promises to be, it’s about young voices not being heard and a battle with what is imagination, and what is not. For the video, I wanted to create imagery I hadn’t seen or tried before, mixing colourful animation with moving footage, drifting through trees and city streets, then to a gig in a bar, and perhaps there’s a subconscious sideways nod to ‘Take On Me’ by AHA.”
