Electronic music duo, Pocket Disco, has released their second single ‘Blush’.

Salóme R. Gunnarsdóttir and Steindór Grétar Jónsson were established earlier this year when they premiered their first single ‘Rock & Roll‘. The ‘Rock & Roll’ music video was an otherworldly space inspired glamfest while their new music video is punk all the way featuring thirteen televisions and VHS cassettes.

“We have been developing our sound and ‘Blush’ is much more rough than our first single. The lyrics are about those first days of seeing someone new, getting to know their personality and discovering whether the person’s perfect image disappears or not.” Steindór told us.

The music video was directed and edited by artist, Atli Bollason, who had been collecting old televisions. Gabríel Benedikt Bachmann did additional editing and Kristjana Björg Reynisdóttir styled the video. Sound design, recording, mixdown and master of the song is by Viktor Orri Árnason.
