Our latest video of the week comes from New Zealand's Ophelia, an electronic pop duo consisting of composer/producer Patrick Shanahan and singer/song-writer Alex Louise. Their latest song "Eden" continues the themes of their previous work - beat centric electronic pop, and lyrics imbued with strong narrative purpose. The song has a bit more of a pep to it than some of their previous work, which perhaps leaned more on the introspective side, and the video - playfully animated by Design Weasel's Chris Williams - is purely cartoonish, an interesting creative choice that, through sheer juxtaposition, only helps draw even more attention to the strength of the song's production and lyrical content. Give "Eden" a listen, head over here to purchase it on iTunes (if you so desire), and be sure to keep an ear out for more music from this promising young duo. MB
