[Video] Blaenavon - Prague '99

After the release of EP 'Prague ’99' last month, Blaenavon now share the visuals to lead single and title track.

The video - directed by Foals and Toothless collaborator, Kit Monteith - places the band centre stage in a stylishly shot performance intertwined with vocalist and guitarist Ben Gregory's beautifully choreographed movements and synchronised interactions with his female doppelgänger.

Kit Monteith had this to say of the video: "The song is so dynamic - intricate at times as well as soaring and majestic. We wanted to make sure the visuals matched up to this and developed a technique where all these sides could be seen at once; combining slow motion and normal speed action within the same shots. However, the track is more complex still, there is sadness yet strange celebration within it and this more emotive side is where we wanted to experiment in making Ben's psyche a character in itself. We wanted to create a surreal space where Ben could start to blend with a female presence and for this merging of forms to be the visual backdrop to the fragility, anguish and intensity of his performance on the track. It was also just a nice excuse to see a Blaener in the buff."

Track Of The Day :: The Velvet Hands - Games

Words: Sam Geary

The now London-based Cornish garage rockers The Velvet Hands may not be up for playing 'Games' on the new single - released September 22 via Easy Action Records - but they sure pack a punky punch on it.

Taken from their debut album, 'The Party's Over', due for release in Spring 2018, and produced and mixed by Ben Woods and Jamx Jules, the wiry, driving guitar'd ‘Games’ - a new cut of a track first out in 2015 - is the second single from the album, following ‘Sick Of Living’, their RSD17 7".

The Velvet Hands play Mono, Falmouth on September 28 with Skinny Milk, followed by Looe Festival on October 1.

Newcastle trio The Pale White have shared the video to latest single 'Downer', which comes from their self-titled EP out on September 29, which includes previous singles 'Reaction' and 'Turn It Around'.

Produced by John Martindale and the band at Blank Studios, 'Downer' is a rousing, thunderous indie-rock track that goes straight for the jugular - as evidenced in the band's live performance vid clip.
