Beatcomber Drop Single 'Double Visions' + Video

Beatcomber Drop Single 'Double Visions' + Video

Wednesday 17th April, 2019 11:33AM

Dunedin / Wellington / London psych-poppers Beatcomber are keeping us busy after a long hiatus with their second single in one month ahead of their Creature Comforts EP, due to drop Wednesday 1st May. The clip for 'Double Visions' is trippy, up-beat and comes in time to extend the feeling of Summer bliss just a little longer. Psychedelic visuals show us lions and whales drifting across outer space, through a pair of bright pink wayfarers. An NZ-indie dream team is behind the band's latest track, with Sophie Scott-Maunder, Trent Williams, Jonathan Shirley, Sam Young and Thomas King (who made the video) making up the currently geographically separated group – mixed and mastered by Oliver Devlin and co-recorded by Trent Williams and Steven John Marr. Singer / keyboardist Scott-Maunder described the song as "a spacey-psyche tune about navigating the music industry in a patriarchal society" and opened up about the themes behind 'Double Visions'...

"The lyrics for Double Visions had always been improvised by Trent and I whenever we performed it live. We got away with it for so long because there was so much delay on our vocals that nobody knew what we were singing. The song took on a new meaning when I eventually had to write and record the vocals. I had been ruminating about what it means to be a woman in the music industry and the song enabled me to project those repressed feelings of indignation."

Beatcomber’s EP Creature Comforts is available for pre-order now here.
