Alt-Soul Maverick Ang Low reveals visuals for his stunning single Memories

Alternative, Electronic, Soul

Innovator and musical maverick Ang Low has released an official video for his latest track Memories.

Ang Low is a leading light in the Alt-Soul scene, with electro infused tracks that push the boundary of genre and make music that is truly magic.

The visuals for moving track Memories are a stunning choreographed piece of art, showcasing Ang Low’s feverish creativity and imagination. He comments-

“Memories is about losing yourself, bringing yourself back to reality with memories. The things that we try to accomplish in life, the lives we lead, who we say we are is only just a memory in the end. Life sets us on fire and we have nothing but a great memory to keep us going.”

The video oozes quality and originality, an important element to Ang –

“In this industry of hot people doing the same things and looking the same I just wanted to be the oddball. Just wanted to be me. I had to learn the song backwards, walk and choreograph backwards.

We kept throwing out and building ideas until we came up with this. We practiced for 5 weeks getting our angles and shots right. We only did two takes.

We wanted one but the first take I threw my pants at the camera and it turned.. but we finished the take, did another and just combined the two which turned out to look awesome”. 

Weird, wonderful and alien, artist Ang Low is a true innovator to the Alt-Soul genre and an exciting talent breaking through the scene.

Memories is taken from Ang’s new album UP a masterpiece dedicated to oddballs and misfits across the globe. 

The world of Ang Low’s music is pure psychedelic magic. With some of the most intriguing visuals we’ve seen all year, Memories is set to make the electro soul high priest a brilliant success.
