Neoclassic Lovers the new single by Berlin based electronic pop duo Lebron Aggressive begins with the eerie warble of pre-dawn synthesized song birds in a virtual world.
The late night bus rumbles by, while a full moon hangs above the two single matching beds of Peter Entrée and Jordan Ramsay (the Sims 4 aliases of real life Lebron Aggressive band members Nick Fox and Ed Whitman). A lonesome rhythmic guitar begins to slide in with the dawn as the camera zooms into a roofless open house which is filled with the Neoclassic artefacts of Peter and Jordan’s exceptionally fun and funky life style.
“A lonesome rhythmic guitar begins to slide in with the dawn”
Fade to black, a gleeful voice sings out ‘Won’t you give me a kiss?’, fingers snap, the beat drops in, and the day begins. They both magically twirl-jump out of their opposite single beds and proceed into a comically stylistic kind of ‘twinning’. They go about their day, a lil’ gyrating sway in their step and pretty much do every single activity together as the carefree electro-pop dance single ‘Neoclassic Lovers’ plays along as their background soundtrack.
The day flows on as a soulfully eccentric, vocoded vocal narrates a fashionable love story with an embedded ode to the beauty of art history. The shared sense of appreciation that is at the core of this track seems authentic and endearing, while in between the beats are subtle details that provide for a steady stream of laughter.
“a light-hearted extremely danceable single with a solid warm disco groove and a slight undercurrent of deeper emotion”
All the while the reality that this duo rollicks through remains on the surface nothing more than a simulation. And once again the nightclub is calling, the characters are getting restless and are just looking for some fun.
‘Won’t you give me a kiss?’
‘Neoclassic Lovers’ is a light-hearted extremely danceable single with a solid warm disco groove and a slight undercurrent of deeper emotions that is perfect for spending the day with your fun loving collaborator in music, clothes and art admiration.
But in the end if your Neoclassic lover would rather take another, remember, that’s OK, the neon light palm trees, marble columns, and janitor Onesies will still be waiting for you tomorrow.
