Premiere: Watch Garagee's New Music Video 'Blood feat. Steve Kilbey'

Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Naarm/ Melbourne-based electronica artist Garagee's new single 'Blood' is an atmospheric ride of swirling, vivid beats, trippy, reality-warping rhythms and imaginative lyrics.

Active for more than a decade and a half, Garagee is the alter-ego of multi-instrumentalist Rob McPherson, whose style combines ambient electronics with post-rock tones to create haunting, ethereal soundscapes ideal to score arthouse film projects.

The lead single for his upcoming third studio album 'Garagee 3', 'Blood' is a trip-hop, dub-heavy sonic journey that features the sublime talents of The Church's Steve Kilbey, who brings his trademark existential reflection to the project.

A haunting, melancholic flamenco guitar serenades the opening of the song, quickly accompanied by lush, atmospheric pads and dusty drums creating a fizz-&-crackle, old-vinyl environment alongside the soothing, reminiscent vocals of Kilbey.

Ahead of the song's release tomorrow (17 May), scenestr is thrilled to premiere the entrancing 'Blood' music video. Enjoy.

"I like to name an instrumental piece first, so I have a context to lean into with the performance," begins Garagee. "In naming this piece 'Blood', the headspace was always to represent a flow of reflective mournfulness that we all identify with at one time or another.

"I had Steve in mind when I wrote this, and the lyrics and vocal performance which he brought to the song connected with its essence in expanding ways. I couldn't be prouder of what we've created."
