Los Angeles-based artist/vocalist/producer ayokay has released his immersive new album, Digital Dreamscape today via Astralwerks. To celebrate the arrival of Digital Dreamscape, ayokay has also released the video for “Amnesia,” an exhilarating collaboration with Nashville-based alt-pop band Nightly. Watch the video and stream the album now below.
Accompanied by a series of surreal and cinematic videos, Digital Dreamscape follows protagonist Alex as he becomes entangled with a mysterious character named Chelle, an outsider who’s created a computer system that allows her to enter another reality. Joining them in this world, known as “Digital Dreamscape,” are multitudes of people who leave behind relics of their experiences — or decide to never return home.
“I like my music to offer an escape and an aesthetic that listeners can immerse themselves into,” said ayokay of the album, “A world that is light on its feet, but one that offers depth where the entire spectrum of emotions can be exercised. I want listeners to sit down and watch the entire visual portion of the album as it plays alongside the music. I want them to let it take them to a different place for a second and allow their minds to be free to think up and feel whatever they want to feel, at least for the runtime of the project.”
Directed by Jonah George, the video for “Amnesia” resumes the narrative that first began with lead single “Better With You” and continued through previously released tracks “I Still Need You,” “Waiting For” with slenderbodies, and “If That’s What You Need.”
ayokay is set to hit the road with Emmit Fenn tomorrow night in San Diego. Tickets can be found HERE. All dates are listed below.
