A marriage of modern-day cool and old-fashioned vulnerability is exactly what Dondi Virrey, Ryan Villena, and Camille Besinga set out to express when they formed dancetronica outfit Techy Romantics in June 2008. Dondi weaves layer upon layer of electronica, conjuring moods that gracefully glide from ecstasy to melancholy. Ryan’s guitars ease in, propping up the dreamy dance vibe with a sturdy dose of grit and gravitas. Camille’s words—equal parts somber, sensual, and soothing—round out the sonic experience, a clear, calming presence that cuts through the cloud of riffs and beats. (by Cheekie Albay)
In 2011, Techy Romantics asked our agency, Provago, Inc. to do branding materials for the launch of their second album, Escape. Here are some of the shots from the group’s official media photos. Concept and art direction by Paulo Correa.
