Toronto native Est-Her was a professional ballet dancer with a successful dancing career ahead of him, until one day he pushed it all to the side. After spending many late nights after rehearsal writing music, he decided it was time to pursue a musical career under his moniker. Est-Her soon caught the attention of producers at home in Toronto and in the UK, where he traveled to record his first releases, and the resulting first single - the dark and massive pop-gem "Sympathy" - landed him a BBC Radio 1 premiere with Annie Mac, and praise from Pigeons & Planes who said "one of the best debut songs we've heard"
Today Est-Her shares his second-ever single, another self-released track entitled "Last Minute Wedding." Accompanied by a dramatic music video that was self-directed by Est-Her, "Last Minute Wedding" is another exciting look at what's to come for this talented new artist. Listen to the track and watch the video now over at Pigeons & Planes.
"I've been sitting on some of these tracks for a year now, and it feels so good to release more and more. My first track 'Sympathy' was pretty aggressive, so thought I'd take a deep breath with 'Last Minute Wedding' which I wrote with a crazy talented young producer from France named Poter Elvinger. I have about three albums-worth of music I'm sitting on at the moment, and my laptop is dying. I think it's time.
"When I'm writing, I always have some film playing in the background. When I finish each track, I splice together these supercuts from either scenes of films that I love, or random clips I think best suits the song. For 'Last Minute Wedding,' I started compiling a ton of home movies of weddings taped on VHS, and sped them up to look like a flip book. I had fleshed out a whole bride and hearse concept, and brought it to a good friend of mine to help me film it on a small budget. It was way too much work for the team of people we had, but it all worked out and it feels good share it."
