Two Bright Lakes is proud to release the debut film clip ‘Ninja’, from Banoffee premiered today on US blog Pigeons and Planes.
Banoffee is the sweet solo sound of Martha Brown (Otouto), a Melbourne songwriter with a keen ear for vintage synthesizers and modern R-n-B.
Banoffee’s music recalls the balearic sounds of the 1980s and the futurist space of UK bass music, merging with her own arresting take on R’n’B, a musical place where Detroit inspired synths end up in love songs that sound distinctly modern.
Her debut single Ninja twists and starts, Martha’s voice taking you where you’d least expect. Regular collaborator Alice Glenn accompanies the song with an hypnotic and intimate clip shot in an otherworldly warehouse space.
Two Bright Lakes is very excited to be releasing the first of Banoffee’s music to the world, beautifully crafted, esoteric pop music from a strong female voice.
“Banoffee plies intimate ache into jams that still inspire dancefloor joy.”
