South Yorkshire’s Dead Slow Hoot bring us a wonderful visual accompaniment to their new single today – the deeply effecting ‘An Island Keen To Float’ – and we have the premiere of the new video right here.
Taken from their debut album ‘No Reunions’ which was released earlier this year, ‘An Island Keen To Float’ is one of the stand-out tracks and a haunting, lingering ode to being disconnected from people and wanting to float away from each other. Is that a nod to Brexit in the beautiful title of the single too? We can only wonder.
The beautiful new video for the track was shot in Lewes, East Sussex (England) on Bonfire Night, an annual event steeped in history that takes place in an otherwise sleepy town, and as the band explain, “felt incredibly poignant to witness in light of the current political turmoil in the UK, given its origins in class and religiously motivated tensions that feel eerily familiar in the present day”. Go ahead and tune in now!
