Canadian duo Love Thy Brother released a video for their 80’s inspired track, “Arrested” ft. vocals from NYC native Norma Jean Martin.
Featuring a dancer, twisting and turning his body from scene to scene, changing figures into more mature versions of himself and seducing an older woman in her home oasis, the video is a picturesque version of the lyrics “I could get arrested for what I’m thinking right now.”
There are close ups of the dancer’s chiseled, glittered body in accentuated lighting as viewers are taken on a journey from innocent, sensitive and young, to manly, and finally to an exaggerated masculine character representative of a raw, animalistic desire.
With their new original material, Love Thy Brother aims to instill a certain kinetic energy, and leave each track with a timeless quality. “I’m always trying to find sounds that feel organic and real and not at all like they came out of a computer,” says Liam Clarke. “Lately I’m inspired by a lot of anthemic, over-the-top stuff from the ’80s—music that gives you that driving-at-night kind of feeling. I like the idea of harnessing that feeling and bringing it into this era, but in a way that feels really raw.”
Starting as a production project, remixing songs for artists like Banks and Lana Del Rey, Love Thy Brother is now focused on creating original material that brings a pure vitality to the most meticulously crafted track. After time on the road with acts like Justice and Gryffin, Love Thy Brother is ready to make the transition from producer to artist, and step into the forefront of the electronic music world.
In addition to developing their new material, the two siblings have each found major success in two distinct pursuits over the past few years: Conor as the CEO and co-founder of Wavo, one of the biggest technology and marketing platforms in music, and Liam as a wildly prolific commercial-music producer whose work has appeared everywhere from episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to Smirnoff ads to the boarding soundtrack on American Airlines flights.
