One of Belfast’s most interesting bands Sea Pinks’ released their fine album Soft Days recently. Out now on CF Records, today we’re premiering the video for new single ‘Yr Horoscope’. It’s a spidery, blissful lament, and its beauty lies in its simplicity. Beach Boys melodies spin tightly with the kind of taught guitar lines that have seen Day Wave find success on the other side of the planet recently. It’s a small world.
Here, bandmember Neil Brogan, who you may also recognise from Girls Names and Cruising, talks about how the video came about:
“It was directed by Steven [Henry] our bass player. There’s a lady going into some kind of trance while we kind of fade in and out and some other random things happen. It’s two minutes of your life you won’t get back so you may as well enjoy it.”
We can’t argue with that, here’s the vid:
Sea Pinks play live in London on 12 February at The Shacklewell Arms as part of the Scared To Dance clubnight with The Leaf Library and Young Romance. Alongside Brogan (guitar and vocals) and Henry, they also feature Davey Agnew (Newton Forest FC) on drums.
