Ride has shared the Niall Trask-directed video for ‘Catch You Dreaming’ from their new EP Tomorrow’s Shore out now via Wichita Recordings.
“For me the song evoked feelings of human memory, time and travel. So it seemed natural to capture it visually with collage. We incorporated the wave element so familiar in Ride’s art direction, their foundations in Banbury, the energy of a live show, all bound together with a performance scenario,” Trask said in a press release.
It’s the second single from the EP, which follows their 2017 album Weather Diaries, their first release in 20 years. The band joined forces with producer Erol Alkan and mixer Alan Moulder. Moulder also worked with them on their albums Nowhere and Going Blank Again.
Signing to Wichita Records saw them once again working with Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with them during their early years on Creation Records.
“We wanted to call to mind our more humble origins and the first demo recording sessions we did together back in 1988. Some personal memorabilia from that time also features in the video including photos, sketches, posters, and even the original four-track we recorded our first demo on!” Ride’s Loz Colbert said in a statement.
“‘Catch You Dreaming’ is written from the perspective of being one of the last two people alive, watching as the Universe is ending. The protagonist looks back over the time when humanity existed, realising that we as humans brought about our own inevitable demise. Then the couple look back over their own lives of shared memories and as they are sharing this moment, everything vaporises. It’s a love song about fate, nostalgia, and having no regrets,” his bandmate Andy Bell added.
The track was written during the sessions for Weather Diaries.
