Let Go is taken from The Very Best’s forthcoming album “Makes A King” released on 6th April.
Johan from The Very Best explains “The idea was to have a video that looked like an old-school 8-Bit game with the characters and landscape made out of pixel beads. One level in Malawi where we run from street dogs and fight off Monsantos GMO monster maize plants, and one level in Sweden where we run from a fox and our enemies are the far right-wing political party. The whole video is a collaboration between Pappas Parlor and The Very Best”
World music-mashing duo the Very Best are exploring a series of 8-bit landscapes in the new, vintage videogame-styled video supporting their recent "Let Go" single.
As previously reported, the track breezily blends chiming guitars with the cloud-soft vocal harmonies of Esau Mwamwaya. It's not as heart-pumping a soundtrack as, say Mega Man 2 or the moon level of Ducktales, but the song is a suitable enough score to the digitized versions of Mwamwaya and bandmate Johan Hugo as they leap over a jungle level's man-eating crocodiles or duck polar bears in an ice world.
