Kévin Vergobbi is a classically trained, French multi-instrumentalist and producer, who first started off playing with several different rock bands including PHOTO, MS&TW and currently BALM. Vergobbi’s solo recording project Kaituhi, which means “the scribe” finds the French multi-instrumentalist and producer creating work that’s a decided departure from his previously recorded output — centered around a much more melancholic emotional range, the project specializes in escapist and ambient synth pop.
Vergobbi’s seven song, Benjamin Cholet and Augustin Bretillard-co-produced EP Taratahi is slated for a September 2020 release through Pschent Music. “Divine,” Taratahi’s latest single is a slow-burning and cinematic track centered around shimmering synth arpeggios, thumping beats and Justine Rousseau’s plaintive and ethereal vocals. At its core, is an achingly wistful nostalgia for something that seemed much simpler and peaceful.
The recently released video is set around a very simple concept: an old Commodore 64-like computer in some overgrown grasses. And on the screen, we see various space missions — although at one point, everything turns into wild psychedelic colors: the grass turns purple and then switches back to its normal color.
