Dublin-born producer Jack Casey, aka. EMBRZ, has released the soothing acoustic video of ‘Heartlines’ featuring Indie Pop duo, Meadowlark.
Shot in an atmospheric indoor recording area, the acoustic video for ‘Heartlines’ focuses on the raw voice of Meadowlark lead singer Kate McGill, who utilizes her dreamy vocals, with soft keyboard melodies. With close-up shots of instrumentals slowly drifting in and out of focus, the video’s tone matches the equally chilled and melancholy mood of the accompanying track, with both EMBRZ and Meadowlark present in the video.
Fresh off the back of his five-track EP Progress, the acoustic version of ‘Heartlines’ follows much critical acclaim on the original, which has already received over 1.5 million combined streams, and follows the EP’s lead track ‘Higher’ which reached #1 on HypeMachine.
‘Heartlines’ outlines an incredibly dreamy composition while effortlessly blending downtempo chords. The release affords the perfect soundtrack for any chill setting while also exhibiting EMBRZ’s progression as an artist, evoking feelings of nostalgia by way of atmospheric melodies.
EMBRZ says of the original of ‘Heartlines’: “I’ve always wanted to make something that would fit into the Indie / Pop spectrum,I love music that combines acoustic instruments and subtle electronic elements, which I think ‘Heartlines’ captures. The song really came to life when I sent the demo to Kate who absolutely nailed the vocal.”
EMBRZ is a self-taught producer continuing to make his impact on the dance music spectrum with his unique, genre-defying sound. He found success with two massive official remixes, Ellie Goulding’s “How Long Will I Love You” and The 1975’s “Settle Down” with both demonstrating his versatility as a producer, and instinct for melody. Since then, he’s been uploading a steady stream of melodic club heaters, including well-received cuts like “Home,” “Lights” and then “Breathe” which has amassed over 4 million Spotify plays.
This month, EMBRZ will be playing at Beatyard Festival in Dublin, before making his American festival debut at UpNorth Festival in Michigan. With a wealth of material in the pipeline to come from the Irish producer in the coming months, EMBRZ is continuing to cement his status as an artist to watch for 2017.
