Salt Spring Island musicians Daemon & Airdrie have signed with a California-based record label and on March 20 released a new music video.
Entitled Go Easy, the single explores human freedom and transformation through letting go.
Daemon & Airdrie are a collaboration between Marley Daemon and Jesse Thom, who have been playing together in various bands for about 10 years.
They recently signed on with GYPSYPOP Records and Go Easy is their third single on the label. The song’s video was filmed on Salt Spring, both in their studio and on a canoe trip on Cusheon Lake.
“Our lyrics will sort of express that imprisoned sense that a human can feel and it’ll juxtapose that with the sense of freedom that is possible when we’re able to come into our bodies and drop our thinking mind,” Thom said.
He describes the band’s sound as “ghost pop,” a mixture of familiar pop music structure with an influence in meditation and healing.
“The space [in the music] allows ghosts to emerge in a certain kind of way,” he said. “That provides an atmosphere and opportunity for feelings to come up and to make themselves known to us . . . These are parts of ourselves that we’ve killed off at one point. These are the ghosts returning.”

Daemon & Airdrie did a 2 minute feature on SHAW TV in Canada.
Daemon & Airdrie are an electronic “ghost pop” duo from BC, Canada who combine intensely emotional, interweaving vocal lines with relaxed, minimal beats and sparse instrumentation to produce soundscapes that are as haunted as they are seductive. Choosing to abandon laptop-based production, the duo create and perform their material using samplers, live instruments and an arsenal of vintage gear, analog tape effects, spring verbs and dusty old tubes. The result? A unique sound that bridges earth and wire – a place where electricity meets and dances with the naked, human body.

"Melt" is the second video/single by BC "ghost pop" duo, Daemon & Airdrie. Sexy, dusty, emotional....another catchy slow burner from the duo that gained the attention (and praise) of Huffington Post with their first single, "China Shop."
Lyrically, "Melt" explores the process of moving through a deep life transition. Regret and despair shift to hope, renewal and awakening to real possibilities. The video features twin contact dancers Brianna and Jaclyn Grant and was filmed on Salt Spring Island in BC. The twin sisters begin as polar opposite characters (representing ego and spirit). Over the course of the song they make contact, dance together and merge into a confluence of grace, surrender and trust.
