Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Angela Space works under the moniker Rainbow Reservoir, producing surreal tunes with poppy arrangements that only hint at her classical background and an alternative career teaching saxophone at the University of Southampton. Here she describes the making of the video for City Bike, which we have on the website as an exclusive. Enjoy!
City Bike was inspired by my first trip to Berlin. I had an entirely surreal couple days where people turned into other people with the same name, a monster drove a cab, and things came out of the darkness that were beautiful and unexpected and terrifying. The video was all shot in Berlin, mostly from a bike. It is supposed to give you that slightly mad feeling of a night out where you are just going wherever the bike, tram, or train takes you.
My second EP 400 Imperfect Rhymes was recorded in Oxford at Oli and Rob Steadman‘s studio. Oli and Rob played bass and drums respectively and Oli did the engineering. Duncan McNaughton played the trumpet track on City Bike. The beautiful album artwork was done by Kiri Kopcke and depicts Berlin, which is a city that had a great effect on me and my songwriting.
400 Imperfect Rhymes was mostly written at Tegel Airport and if I were to do a video for 400 Imperfect Rhymes it would probably involve Tegel Airport arrivals and departures displays.
400 Imperfect Rhymes by Rainbow Reservoir will be released on July 14th 2014. Find Rainbow Reservoir on band camp here, and facebook here.
