Overhead, The Albatross Share Video For 'Indie Rose'

Dublin instrumental six-piece Overhead, The Albatross have shared a poetic video to accompany their new single ‘Indie Rose’.

The track begins somewhere in lullaby territory and winds up in a place more nightmarish altogether, with the visuals encompassing a Joycean odyssey around contemporary Dublin along the way. Coming it at just under eight minutes, ‘Indie Rose’ and its accompanying visuals mesh together to form a slow-burning glimpse into the lives of a multitude of multi-faceted Dubliners. Sonically, the piece ebbs and flows in sync with the video, luring the listener into an almost meditative flow before rising out of the soothing soundscape and striking with violent energy at the track’s apex.

The recruitment of director Luke Daly, alongside DoP Kevin Minogue and editor James Murphy has resulted in a visual piece worthy of the grand scale of Overhead, The Albatross’s musical endeavours. The scope of ‘Indie Rose’ is ambitious, and the band have proven more than capable of producing a cinematic track that will surely whet the appetite ahead of debut album Learning to Growl, scheduled for release on 13 May.

As anticipation builds ahead of their first full-length release, Overhead, The Albatross have scheduled listening parties for the album in The Workman’s Club for both 6 April (sold-out) and 7 April, as well as a live performance in the same venue on 9 April.
