Hot on the heels of her latest album "Jesus Was An Alien", Perel releases a music video for her song Matrix off the LP. She also invited Berlin's Sofia Kourtesis to lay her hands on the anthemic piano house tune. Sofia drenches "Matrix" into a densely brooding latin vibe, complete with chanting cicadas and jungle noises for those endless, sultry nights ahead of us. It can't get more summery than this, can it?
"Let’s get one thing out of the way" Perel explains "this track is not inspired by the movie trilogy “Matrix“, but based on William Gibson’s iconic cyberpunk novel “Neuromancer“ as well as ideas of Hindu influences. Unplugging from an illusory world and cast into the truth of reality in order to transcend our own ignorance — a product of maya, literally meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit — to uncover our true nature.” "Ok, now to the less pretentious” she continues “In the end I just wanted to make a track that makes me feel good, that literally unplugs me from my many thoughts and sorrows, and shift my perspective.”
