"Escape Destination, videoclip made by We Love, expresses the Italian duo's black and white project, which can melt the dynamic rhythm of the journey with a meditation about spaces (white and aseptic hotels and airports, "non-places" well-known by touring musicians), eith of course the ever constant presence of technology from the radio to musical instruments. Overall the design is reminiscent of the "space age" look, with reference to the movie The 10th Victim by Elio Petri. It is a cultured and pop product in which nothing is by chance and the simplicity of the images speaks for itself."
"In Escape Destination, video realizzato dai We Love, si esplica il progetto in bianco e nero del duo italiano, che riesce a fondere il ritmo dinamico del viaggio con una riflessione sugli spazi (alberghi ed aeroporti bianchi e asettici, i non-luoghi che i musicisti in tour conoscono bene), mentre è costante la presenza della tecnologia, dalla radio agli strumenti musicali. Nell'insieme ricorda un design dalla linea "space age", con microcitazioni da La decima vittima di Elio Petri. Un prodotto pop estremamente colto e consapevole, in cui nulla è lasciato al caso dall'efficace semplicità delle immagini."
"Don't Cross is a videoclip made by We Love. This short but very elaborate piece of work with a sophisticated and elegant concept, proposes a refined and melancholic poetry through visual tricks that imply a coloured and rarefied microcosm, heavily influenced by the imagery and the tradition of animation of Svakmajer and by Japanese childish icons. Subtle references to Norman McLaren and the Quay Brothers will be recognised by the more attentive viewer, but the attention to detail and the unique personalities of the characters, the delicate and fascinating plot together with the rhythmical movement of the shapes make this video absolutely irresistible."
"Don't Cross è un videoclip realizzato dai We Love. Piccola opera di notevole elaborazione formale, che rimanda ad un concept sofisticato ed elegante, propone una raffinata e melanconica poesia attraverso giochi visuali che suggeriscono un microcosmo colorato e rarefatto, legato all'immaginario e alla tradizione del disegno animato da Svankmajer alle icone nipponiche infantili. Sottili citazioni da Norman McLaren ai Quay Brothers solleticano lo spettatore più attento, ma la particolare caratterizzazione dei personaggi, una trama delicata ed avvincente e il ritmo visivo delle forme in movimento rendono il videoclip assolutamente irresistibile."
WE LOVE are Giorgia Angiuli, (a.k.a metùo), music performer, collector of fragrances and Piero Fragola (a.k.a. Werk Design), graphic designer and videoartist. The project started on a cold Winter Sunday in 2009.
On returning from their holidays, they randomly met young music producer and remixer Marco Palazzo (a.k.a. Keith) in a railway station; a collaborative project with him soon began, resulting in their first and homonymous album on Bpitch Control. It is again in a railway sta- tion that they created their first composition “Escape Destination”, followed by another 9, all connected to one another by the unifying theme of visions and travel (“When the window of a train takes you somewhere.” - WE LOVE.)
The Band’s acoustic and electronic instruments charm with their bichromatic, black and white allure: a vintage heart-shaped guitar, a contemporary design self-made midi controller (which was sponsored by Italian I&S furniture and fashion design company), a drum machine, and two keyboards, complementing Piero and Giorgia’s voices. Their objective is to explore the relationships between various forms of aesthetic expression, such as sound, visual art, fashion and design.
WE LOVE are not “just another electro band”: their consistent collaboration with professional artists (amongst whom are David Campanini, Diana Ferri, Jamaica De Marco and Elliot James Shaw) has produced original performance pieces.
The band’s bichromatic video art provides the backdrop for the amazing pair of “soldiers of love”’s live sets, which are embellished by romantic and evocative contemporary style clothes and masks. Art visuals caress the stage set with luminous random movements, as in a stream of consciousness gushing out of everyday life. Actions rapidly take place one after the other, and one often feels overwhelmed by countless fleeting external stimuli as blank sheets of paper vanishing into nothingness.
In an innermost dimension of vision, there is always something which prevents us from being transparent: LOVE.
