Sibling duo Bay Ledges’s latest single, “I Remember,” is bursting with bright guitar riffs, airy synth lines, and warm summery grooves. The track makes you want to sip on a Mai Tai with a pink straw and tiny umbrella, and its video builds on the summer surrealism vibes.
The wacky visual flashes from scenes of the real-life siblings (Zach and Georgia Hurd) singing their tune in a neon-tinted room to shots of the video’s main subjects, who have some rather bizarre encounters with strangers in animal masks. Once they make it to the club where the indie-pop duo are performing, though, the animal-mask skepticism seems to fade — until the guy wakes up beside one the next morning.
“Above everything else, [we] just thought it would be weird and funny to have a video full of people dancing around in animal masks,” Zach says of the video’s strange concept. “After all, I started Bay Ledges as a way to have fun.”
“I Remember” was directed by The Mitchells, who were inspired by the movie Donnie Darko when conceptualizing the video. The song marks Bay Ledges’ first release since 2017’s Fountain Tropical and was written with Miro Mackie, known for his work with The Neighbourhood and St. Vincent.
