With the realisation of a second Decade album finally coming to fruition in the next few weeks, the Bath based alternative rock outfit have now unveiled another cut, ‘Peach Milk’, from their upcoming sophomore album, ‘Pleasantries’.
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Peach Milk’ below:
Speaking about the concept behind the video, the band explained, “For the ‘Peach Milk’ video we wanted to try our hand at creating something as cinematic as possible with a budget of approximately £0, using only the tools at our disposal. Towards the end of Summer 2016 we drove to the west coast of England with Jess Greaves (videographer) and repeatedly burned Alex’s face and torso with the sheer and brute power of English sand (mud).
The concept for the video stems from the chorus lyric ‘Drag me to the sea’. We wanted to present the theme literally but instil doubt as to whether anyone actually was dragging Alex into the tide against his will, or rather that he’s almost schizophrenically attempting to drown himself. Cheerful for sure.
The question we attempted to ask, albeit in a metaphorically artsy way; are we unwillingly consumed by emotions and people, or do we wade in voluntarily? How can we tell the difference? The video resolves with the clarity of liberation (as you do).
Ultimately with this visual accompaniment to the song, we just wanted to see what was possible with our own bare hands. We think what we managed to create, taking into account our inexperience with film, turned out pretty cool.”
The band’s sophomore studio album, ‘Pleasantries’, is scheduled to see a release on February 24th 2017 via Rude Records.
