Monica da Silva and Chad Alger – aka Complicated Animals – have shared a video for latest track ‘Show Me’, and it’s a lush, dreamy set of visuals that’ll have swaying under the nearest mirror ball.
The Brazilian American duo were greatly inspired by their recent move to Los Angeles, and although their new track encompasses more of an electronic, synth-based feel, the lyrical subject matter was based on pure human connection.
“’Show Me’ really struck me as an intense idea for a song” says vocalist da Silva. “It’s scary how detached we humans have become. Technology is great, but we’ve got to remember how important human interaction is, and not just go through the motions like zombies. For this song, Chad dug an old synthesizer we had out of the closet. We started stacking sounds and layering vocals. The production came together quickly, and virtually all of the sounds in the track were created using the same synth.”
We’re thrilled that Complicated Animals are making music designed to champion emotion and bring people together in a very real sense. Watch the video for ‘Show Me’ below, and follow the band on Facebook for more updates.
P.S. Monica da Silva’s song ‘Back To His Girl’ is now featured in the Oscar-nominated movie Lady Bird. Go and see it!
