[Video] Eagulls - Velvet
A month ago Leeds' post-punks Eagulls posted on their Facebook page that they had been filming a video for one of their album tracks, 'Velvet'. Today, we see the results.
Taken from their recent second album 'Ullages', the black and white video for 'Velvet', above, was directed by John Minton, whose work lead singer George Mitchell said he has long admired.
"I was a fan of John Minton's work that he'd created for Portishead and was lucky enough to get him to work with me on this video," he told The Fader. "We both share interests in old cinema and we saw Saul Bass and Fernand Leger as inspirations on the visual elements and John was able to adapt these inspirations into a modern take with a theme of love loss running throughout."
