The release of the video for Eagulls‘ ‘Velvet’ follows the kick-off of their North American tour.
“I was a fan of John Minton’s work that he’d created for Portishead and was lucky enough to get him to work with me on this video. We both share interests in old cinema and we saw Saul Bass and Fernand Leger as inspirations on the visual elements. John was able to adapt these inspirations into a modern take with a theme of love loss running throughout,” the band’s lead singer George Mitchell said in a statement.
The track is taken from Eagulls’ latest release Ullages, out now on Partisan Records.
