Today, Alasdair and Lupe premiered the video for “Jean’s Waving” at UndertheRadarMag.com. The video was directed by Grant Wilkinson, and produced by automatikfilms. “It was a beautiful sunny day and we went down to Wivenhoe on the Essex coast because we heard Martin Newell from the Cleaners from Venus lived there,” says the band of the clip. “But we didn’t see him, and ended up shooting the video instead!”
With The House at Sea, Amor de Días take advantage of the same sensibilities that have made them successful at all their varied past endeavors: whimsy, invention, and a sense of play. Recorded by Brian O’Shaughnessy (My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, Denim, Birdie) on 1970s valve equipment, the album spans genres like bossa nova and flamenco without sacrificing the astute pop songwriting for which its members are known.
Pre-order The House at Sea on CD or 180 gm vinyl in the Merge store. LP pre-orders will include a free Merge Records slipmat and a poster while supplies last[see all news]
