Things have been quiet on the Night Beds front for a while, but today that changes. Via The FADER exclusive premiere this morning, Night Beds shared a brand new single entitled “Me, Liquor & God” which shows a slightly new sonic direction for Winston Yellen that still showcases his beautiful voice. Hear the new sound above or here on Night Beds‘ website. While you are at it you can download the single from iTunes now.
We’d like to welcome to the world the first of many Greylag videos. The Portland trio enlisted director Ben Fee to construct a video to match the intensity of single “Yours to Shake” from their debut album Greylag. Watch the trippy video above or at NPR Music.
“Often times, people are after things that they are just instinctively drawn towards. Whether or not those things are good for them, doesn’t matter too much. And those things also blind those people in the process—making them bypass, misuse, under appreciate some really magical things in the journey. Even when they fly so close to their goal, and they can see it could be the end of them, the folks still go further. This doom, and perspective, and instinct, we wanted to paint in a visually poetic way, so as to give a strong feeling, instead of beating a message into the viewers heads with an obvious ABC narrative.” - Ben Fee, Director
