It’s three long years since we last featured homegrown expat Hopium on the site, but with ‘Sunglasses’, the silence is over.
Hopium dropped a single called ‘Leave’ back in February this year, his first original production in two long years.
But brilliantly, he hasn’t kept us waiting two more years for a follow up. ‘Sunglasses’ is here.
And it’s a smashing new piece of electronic pop; fine melodies and beats and just the right amount of vocoder in the choruses to keep us interested.
Lyrically, the track is about hiding behind a veneer, looking for love but not really wishing to reveal your true self, lest you get hurt. The music video follows along that storyline.
“We made this video over four days in Melbourne, in a club, in the rainforest and in the ocean,” Hopium explains. “I journey into my subconscious and eventually have to battle myself.”
