#NewMusicMonday: Proper Micro NV – ‘You Knew Longer Than Me’

Proper Micro NV

LIMERICK artist Rory Hall (aka Proper Micro NV) has produced a dance track that leaves you yearning for the communal celebration of club nights and live gigs.

The electronic music producer, singer and songwriter has performed at Electric Picnic, Body&Soul and Latitude on the back of a positive reaction to his debut album ‘Dormant Boy’ (2018).

Hall revealed that a follow up album, again released by Strange Brew is in the works.

“This song really allowed me to embrace a little bit more of a freeform approach to what is pretty much a dance record. I had a lot more fun with frequencies and making things go where they want to go and expand where they want to expand etc. It’s all quite loose in parts and dance floor driven without actually having a real dance floor at the moment. Like the nightclub that isn’t there.

I wrote this over lockdown – and I think, subconsciously it’s partially written about not having anywhere to perform at the moment.”

The video was made at The Record Room, Limerick.

“I had the idea for this video before the pandemic. So as time went by and everything started to happen in the world, it made even more sense to revisit and film this concept of performing to nobody but myself in a real venue.”
“It felt invigorating to perform on a stage again – even though it wasn’t an actual gig with actual people watching!”
