In and Out by Dom Morley
Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Dom Morley presents his debut single, ‘In and Out’, under the moniker of V Pages. Inspired in name by Victoria Page, a character from the 1948 film ‘The Red Shoes’, V Pages (actually pronounced ‘Five Pages’) draws inspiration in sound from M83, Chvrches, Smashing Pumpkins’ first album, and Alessandro Cortini (a touring member of Nine Inch Nails).
Morley’s credentials can’t be doubted: as a producer and engineer, he has worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, The Police, Scott Walker and Mark Ronson, as well as with Amy Winehouse on ‘Back to Black’ – for which he was awarded his Grammy.
Now, featuring the vocals of producer and singer Saint Saviour (Becky Jones), of Groove Armada fame, this first single In and Out is an atmospheric and uplifting slice of electronica that allows her delicate timbre to shine through. A product that stemmed from his desire to recapture the feeling of hearing The Verve’s debut ‘Storm in Heaven’. About this, Dom says: “I wanted to hear something new that made me feel like ‘Storm In Heaven’. Unable to find it, I decided “it’s time to make my own record.”
The accompanying surreal visuals, directed by Vasily Ovchinnikov, you can watch here below, recalls me a 2011 super movie Drive (directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, starring Ryan Gosling). The surreal atmospheres, combined to the OST, create a unique empathic mixture.
Dom says of the video: “I loved the treatment from the moment I read it, as it started off surreal and then followed a kind of descent into madness that mirrored the building chaos in the synths and the layering of vocals in the track.”
