Alt-rock four-piece Dohny Jep release music video for latest single ‘Fade’

The latest music video from Dohny Jep ‘Fade’ is out now.

They describe the video as a visual representation of the meaning behind the song.   “We felt that it would be visually interesting to have paint plastered all over our faces throughout the video so by the end of the song we aren’t recognisable. This symbolises how much people adapt and change themselves when they upload a new photo or update about themselves or their lives to social media. Rarely people show off who they truly are, not just physically but also their true personality.”

Kent-based alternative-rock four-piece Dohny Jep began as a duo in early 2019, with Stuart and Pete deciding to create something unlike anything either of them had done before in previous bands and projects. With their unique video concepts and mesh of pop-synth melodies and rock guitars, they did just that.  Fast forward one year and with an additional two members in tow, the group self-released their much celebrated debut album L.U.S.T in July 2020.

After playing just one show together as a band, they had tours planned throughout 2020 to coincide with the release of their debut album, but as the Coronavirus put a halt to any plans of playing their new material live, they headed back to the studio to record more new music. 

Following up on the February release of their EP ‘Smile, It Might Never Happen’, comes their second EP of 2021 ‘Shallow Is The Water’, due for release May 28th via Favour The Brave Records.

Recorded at their recently-built home studio and produced, mixed and mastered by Rhys May (Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, While She Sleeps), the EP explores the subjects of change, self-reflection and past mistakes.

Prior to the release comes the EP’s leading single ‘Fade’. Commenting on the track, due for release April 9th, the band state: “Fade is about people who are so fixated on how they look and what they want other people to see, social media sometimes brings out the worst in us. We don’t accept the flaws that we have and feign perfection.”

Shallow Is The Water is due for release May 28th 2021 via Favour the Brave Records and will be available on all major platforms.
