Melbourne indie-rock quartet RVG have detailed both a new single and album for 2020.
The single, ‘I Used To Love You’, follows the release of ‘Alexandra’, which came out last June. Both are taken from RVG’s long-awaited second studio album, ‘Feral’.
The album will be released internationally on Fire Records, with whom the band have just inked a deal – excluding both Australia and New Zealand, where they remain signed with Our Golden Friend.
An accompanying music video for ‘I Used To Love You’ was also released today (February 20) to coincide with both the song and album announcement. It was directed by Tom Campbell, who worked as an assistant director on the acclaimed 2016 film ‘Lion’.
Watch it below:
In a press statement, Campbell explained that the goal of the video was to “honour the intimacy and mystery of the song’s lyrics”.
“There’s a lot left unsaid, so we wanted to lean into the idea of the ‘portrait’ to create something unobtrusive yet deeply affecting.”
Vocalist, guitarist and bandleader Romy Vager added that she “adore[s]” Campbell’s video for the single. “[I] feel like it captures the energy of the song perfectly”, she added.
RVG will tour Australia twice in the first half of 2020: firstly in support of the Pixies on their ‘Come On Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa’ national tour, and again in May with Faith No More.
‘Feral’ is set for release on Friday, April 24.
