Electronic producers David Anthony Curley and Joe Furlong have arrived with “True Romance“, their debut single as The Cope. Based in Dublin and Berlin, the songwriting, producing, film making, audio-visual artist pair are already known within the music industry for their behind the scenes work, and with this unique new music and visual project, they are stepping into the spotlight for the first time. Arriving alongside the single is a stunning, cinematic music video, which can be seen now below.
About the single and accompanying video, director Curley says “Mirroring the themes of the track, the film is a meditation on love, isolation and control. We wanted to create a visual accompaniment to accentuate the listening experience and so we teamed up with acclaimed Belgian based Irish choreographer Zoë Ashe-Browne. Marrying film, music and dance elevates each art form to a higher plane, and this is something we are very passionate about.”
“The last 2 years have seen us starved of dancing and human connection. Creating this music throughout 2020 and 2021 was a way for Curley and Furlong to tap into the feeling of collective catharsis when they couldn’t see their friends. “If this music can facilitate people reconnecting with those moments then our job is done,” says Furlong. “All we want to do is make people dance.”
Recorded and produced by the duo at The Clinic Recording Studios, Curley’s recently opened studio in Dublin, mixed by James Eager, and mastered by Stuart Hawkes at Metropolis Studios, London, “True Romance” is perfectly placed to soundtrack the dancefloors of 2022 and beyond.
