Melbourne-based electronic duo American Doubles have made clear with their debut music video that they’re not thinking small scale. They’re thinking big. To say the spectacular music video for their debut single ‘The Swell’ is an ambitious undertaking would be, in short, a gross understatement. But boy has the risk reaped reward.
First, though, the song. ‘The Swell’ is an 80s-inspired, synth-infused, soaring yet chilled out track that takes inspiration from and in turn conjures up nostalgic childhood seaside memories.
