‘Winter’s Beach’ will come out on 12th October, and is being previewed by a video for first single ‘Swimming At Night’.
The new single was produced by the band’s drummer Dave Maclean. “The Swimming at Night chorus is about closing your eyes or being in the dark and swimming in your own world, your own thoughts,” he says of the track.
“The idea for the video came when we were in Palm Springs. The light and the colours there were extraordinary and were the inspiration behind some of the imagery in the video. That, combined with an old drawing that Tommy found, of a colourful deep blue sea full of creatures. The video was animated by Gemma Yin Taylor who did an amazing job at bringing to life the visual I had in my head.”
