NEWS: Cate Le Bon shares new video for ‘Remembering Me’

 Cate Le Bon has shared ‘Remembering Me,’ the final single/video out in advance of her new album, Pompeii, out February 4th on Mexican Summer. 

Following the release of ‘Moderation’ and ‘Running Away,’ the artful melodies and nimble percussion of ‘Remembering Me‘ germinates from Le Bon’s interests in antiquity, philosophy, architecture, and divinity’s modalities. “In the classical rewrite / I wore the heat like / A hundred birthday cakes / Under one sun,” Le Bon sings, reflecting her own creative process of eloquently expressing reconstituted meltdowns.

‘Remembering Me’ is a insiduous and neurotic diary entry that questions notions of legacy and warped sentimentalism in the desperate need to self-mythologise,” says Le Bon. The accompanying video, directed by Juliana Giraffe and Nicola Giraffe of Giraffe Studios and featuring costumes by Monica Adriana Rowlands, is sparse and colorful, celebrating Le Bon’s artistry. 

“Pompeii is Le Bon’s sixth studio album, and the follow-up to 2019’s Reward. To leverage visionary control, Le Bon invented twisted types of discipline into her absurdist decision making. Primary goals in this project were to mimic the “religious” sensibility in one of Tim Presley’s paintings, which hung on the studio wall as a meditative image and was reproduced as a portrait of Le Bon for Pompeii’s cover. Written primarily on bass, Le Bon plays every instrument (except drums and saxophones) and recorded the album largely by herself with long-term collaborator and co-producer Samur Khouja in Cardiff, Wales. Enter piles of Pompeii’s signature synths made on favourites such as the Yamaha DX7, amongst others; basslines inspired by 1980s Japanese city pop, designed to bring joyfulness and abandonment; vocal arrangements that add memorable depth to the melodic fabric of each song; long-term collaborator Stella Mozgawa’s “jazz-thinking” percussion patched in from quarantined Australia; and Khouja’s encouraging presence.”
