Following the release of their second album “I’m Leaving”, its first single “Dancing Anymore” with the much talked about, YouTube banned, Megaforce directed video earlier this year, Is Tropical return with new single ‘Lover’s Cave’ on August 26th.
The track was inspired by a story Is Tropical were told when playing a show on the beach in Anglet, Southern France. The story tells about a lover’s cave or Chambre D’Amour, where two young lovers went to for a bit of romance but got swept out to sea when the tide came in.
For ‘Lover’s Cave’ video, Is Tropical got together with controversial cult New York photographer Richard Kern, who in the past directed videos for the likes of Sonic Youth and Marlyn Manson, and whose work has been exhibited at MOMA, The Whitney Museum and in solo shows around the world. This one has also been banned by You Tube it seems … but we found it on Vimeo.
