Australian Pop band The Church have released the third single, “No Other You”, from their forthcoming album The Hypnogogue, which arrives on February 24, 2023, via Communicating Vessels. The song intends to read like a short story from science fiction author Philip K. Dick (“A Scanner Darkly,” “Electric Dreams”) and continues the album’s retro-futuristic, dystopian narrative. In that narrative, the plot revolves around “a fictional machine (the Hypnogogue) that extracts music directly from subconscious dreams”.  

While the single “The Hypnogogue” introduces characters “Sun Kim Jong” (a Korean scientist/occult dabbler and creator of the aforementioned contraption) and her love interest/rockstar “Eros Zeta” who wants to employ the machine to revive his flailing career, and the follow up “C’est La Vie” served as a cautionary tale from Zeta’s agent not to mess with the Hypnogogue. New track “No Other You” continues the narrative on a more personal level.

Bassist/vocalist/founder Steve Kilbey explains that it is an “ultra-romantic song that Zeta writes for Sun Kim Jong, who is the inventor of The Hypnogogue. It’s a heartfelt song about an irreplaceable woman. And the Church gets to explore a slightly glam rock feel to boot.”
