LIFE + Night Flowers + Saint Ivy + Yuka Tree – 4th Nov

Following the announcement of their highly anticipated second album ‘A Picture Of Good Health’, a second B-listing on BBC 6 Music and a blistering BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale session for Jack Saunders, Hull outfit LIFE have now shared a new video for their latest single ‘Hollow Thing’.

The video was directed by LIFE and Josh Moore (who also filmed and edited the video) Speaking about the new video frontman Mez Green said the following:

 “This video is the soul laid bare. Fading memories projected onto aging skin but held forever in the photos of the past. Time melts like butter on a fat cats tongue, filling the mouth with guilty pleasure. It lasts for mere seconds before turning into painful emptiness. Dissolving like spoilt acid in the dark corners of an evil morning.

 Sane dogs bark at mad doors

Mad men eat on cold floors

That shallow sound, the pointless hum

That hollow thing. Endless. Numb.”

‘Hollow Thing’ is the second single to be taken from LIFE’s new album (full track list below). Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts), the band home in on a bigger and more focused sound whilst also channelling the lyrical content inwards. Whereas the band’s debut album ‘Popular Music’ was broadly political, the new album takes a more personal approach with beguilingly honest and brave lyrics that are bold in both sound and feeling, whilst also retaining the core DNA of their previous material.

Alongside the new video the band have also announced a series of EU/UK headline tour dates. The band recently embarked on a sold out two-week European tour as main support for IDLES as well as playing one of three sold-out London shows at the Electric Ballroom and have played packed out sets at various festivals throughout the year including: Glastonbury, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Handmade Festival and more.

‘A Picture Of Good Health’ is due out 20th September 2019 via band’s own label ‘Afghan Moon’ and also sees them partner for the first time with [PIAS].

Having picked up over 15 million streams and cultivating 650k monthly listeners on Spotify in a short space of time, the Scottish trio have quickly become known for their brand of colourful and energetic guitar-based indie pop and are quickly beginning to show their universal appeal.

Vistas will be returning to their relentless tour schedule in 2019 with confirmed support slots for later in the year alongside Circa Waves and Fatherson as well as their own UK headline tour.

The new single ‘Eighteen’ is another high-tempo, hook-laden anthem, full of the huge choruses and infectious melodies that have been cementing Vistas as one of the most exciting emerging bands in the country right now. Produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral), ‘Eighteen’ comes through as part of Vistas upcoming four-track EP- Their first body of work.

Speaking on the track the band explain “Eighteen is about looking back on the best summer of your life and wishing you could go back to that moment. What often happens when you look back on those moments is you can forget about some of the bad sides of those experiences because your memory is clouded by nostalgia.”

“The band are continually reaching for the heights, with each new song seeming to punch further and further.” – Clash Magazine
