Koriko Treehouse is a collaborative musical project that seamlessly blends elements of soul, hip-hop, funk, jazz and rock to create some seriously groovy tunes. The project is the brainchild of Adelaide-based musician George Spyrou, who states that the project is not limited to music alone and serves as a “creative outlet” for him; Spyrou creates all of the band’s artwork and directs and acts in the band’s strikingly stylised music videos.
Koriko Treehouse just released their incredibly catchy new single Psychedelic Sun featuring Gab Hyde (as seen on Allday’s Triple J ‘Like A Version’). The song, written while Spyrou was studying in Denmark, embodies Spyrou and Hyde’s audio interpretation of films such as Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and explores “young love and that warm fuzzy feeling you get meeting a lover as a young teen”. Spyrou asserts that the collaboration with Hyde unfolded very organically; “[when] Gabrielle Hyde and I crossed paths it was like BOOM. Music had to be made.” Spyrou says Hyde provided the “perfect vocals” for the light-hearted tune, and we must say we agree completely.
Spyrou co-directed the video with Charles Phillpot and asserts “it’s unlike anything you’ve seen before”, explaining that despite only having a small budget, “we managed to put together a video as bright and light as the song”. The video is incredibly vibrant, which completely complements the song itself. Spyrou explains that “the song is very colourful and I love pastels so we wanted to bring each frame to life with blues, pinks and yellows.” The video depicts Spyrou going on a romantic date with an unlikely companion…check it out below:
