Olympic Ayres latest single “Take Flight” has been steadily rising my most played list since I wrote about it last week. The repeated listens have gotten me pumped for Leisureplex, the upcoming EP which features this breezy slice of electronica.
The video gave me a valid excuse to continue listening to “Take Flight”, though I will admit I was rather taken with the narrative. A lonely old man suffers what appears to be a heart attack while attempting to adjust a television, launching him into visions of important events in his life. As his life flashes before his eyes, we witness the old guy’s joy at being around the people he loved once again.
Not what I expected from Olympic Ayres. It was touching, and also strangely entertaining watching an old man blow out five birthday candles and learn to ride a bike with his thirty something dad.
