Following on from their sunshine grunge lock-down release Peachy and ‘absolute blast of a track’ Tonic For Your Boredom, Release Me is the third single from Christchurch based Power Pop act Imperial April. The song jumps straight in with a pulsing synth bass that lends a streak of new wave to the track. The sweet vocals delve into the disconnect between wanting to see significant change and the denial, apathy and lack of personal commitment that so often smothers those noble intentions, often leaving us waiting for someone else to create change or make things better.

The candy coloured, new wave inspired music video featuring alt-country songstress Katie Thompson and alt-pop powerhouse Emma Dilemma was filmed on a whim when a low key night with friends was escalated quickly with a menagerie of cheap wigs, false eyelashes, bed sheet backdrops and guitars.
