PRE-ORDER SIGNED CD/LP FROM THE HEAVENLY EMPORIUM

To coincide with the announcement of the album — which features the singles ‘Gravedweller’ and ‘Robe For Juda’ as well as live favourite ‘Digsaw’ — the band have shared the brand new video for ‘Wire Frame Mattress’ directed by the great Steve Gullick, who says of the shoot:

“Promo videos have never really been my thing, I did a few a decade or so ago but have steered clear ever since. When I was asked to shoot a video for The Wytches however, I jumped at the chance — this band are special and I want to be involved. At no point did the prospect seem daunting — we just did it and it was easy.”

TOY debut Julian Hand directed video for new single ‘As We Turn’

TOY - As We Turn

New TOY video alert! The band have shared the kaleidoscopic new video for their next single ‘As We Turn’, directed by Julian Hand.

Taken from the band’s second second album ‘Join The Dots’, the single will be available digitally as well as on tasty coloured 12” vinyl (limited to 600 only) and includes a remix of ‘Conductor’ from The Horrors’ Tom Furse plus a brilliant live session take of ‘You Won’t Be The Same’, recorded for Part Time Punks on the band’s last visit to LA. Digital also comes with a bonus remix of ‘It’s Been So Long’ by Plank.

Watch and enjoy the video below and find links to preorder digital and vinyl. We have 100 of the 600 pressings up for grabs in our own emporium so if you miss out, keep eyes peeled for other shops selling the 12″!

PREORDER ON ITUNES (INCLUDES INSTANT DOWNLOAD OF PLANK’S REMIX)

PREORDER VINYL FROM THE HEAVENLY EMPORIUM

Explaining some of the band’s reference points for the video, Panda says:

“The points of reference for the As We Turn video came mostly from early animations we’d seen. Mary Ellen Bute’s first colour film, Synchromy No.4 ‘Escape’ from 1938 was an influence as well as some John Whitney footage. Both use unusual early techniques but achieve something otherworldly and I think that’s what we wanted to try and do. Julian Hand brought in the idea of using chromotropes which are 19th century kaleidoscopic slide which you wind up so they turn. Henri Georges-Clouzot’s unfinished film ‘L’enfer’ was another reference. He uses different filters and lighting as well as strange vivid colours.”

Currently on tour with The Horrors in the US, the band recently played their biggest UK show to date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Raising the rafters with tracks from their recent album ‘Join The Dots’ and self-titled debut.
