Written by Admin on November 2, 2020
This week’s Local eyes video is from Auckland electronic-pop duo Imugi 이무기 Taken from their long-awaited second EP, Dragonfruit. Imugi’s music video for standout single ‘Somebody Else‘ depicts the world of computerised digital characters where Carl and Yery become thrust into cyberspace, featuring appearances from friends and fellow Auckland musicians including Hans., Alexa Casino, Leaping Tiger, and more.
The EP is a celestial 7-track odyssey of synth-pop, trip-hop, electronic, and R&B, Dragonfruit marks a new era for Imugi as the eclectic duo consisting of producer/songwriter Carl Ruwhiu and vocalist/songwriter Yery Cho depart from their label deal to release the new project independently.
A three-year journey of escapism, identity and ultimately finding independence and peace, Imugi 이무기 execute their truest vision and reap the fruits of their love labour on Dragonfruit.
The EP arrives after the release of Imugi’s music video for standout single ‘Somebody Else’. The Sims channelling visual logs listeners into neon cyberspace where Carl and Yery become customized digital characters, featuring appearances from friends and fellow Auckland musicians including Hans., Alexa Casino, Leaping Tiger, and more.
