The catchy song and entertaining video focus on the world of dating and avoiding commitment. Romance becomes a video game where society’s expectations of settling down and getting married become instead a quest for riches. But, of course, there’s a twist ending.
Djakarta teamed up with Hawaiian singer Keilimei for the song and her vocals provide some great interplay and harmonies with their male vocals. Musically, the brothers draw of diverse influences including folk and ’80s electronica to create something that feels completely fresh.
You can check out the video below. Looking For Attention is Djakarta’s third single and they have an EP on the way later this year – watch this space!
