Gigs in Manchester, Leeds, Worcester, Birmingham, Merseyside and Warrington throughout September 2019 to promote their impressive debut single “Nebula” – out September 27th, taken from their recently completed forthcoming EP
Video below…Shot by ‘Samsara Collective’ in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, featuring contemporary dancer Rich Clare, to produce a “cinematic” vibe…
The band’s Eleanor Churchill tells us: “We wanted a similar aesthetic to The Verve’s, ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ video; with its focus on a single character and urban setting, combined with the modern dance movement and social commentary of Childish Gambino’s, ‘This Is America’.
The video is moody and energetic, and gives the impression there’s a lot more going on than meets the eye. Leaves you wanting to know more – just like their sound on this classy debut track.
