Watch Michael James Keane's Video For New Single 'Ceramic Tide'

Personally, a 'Ceramic Tide' is what I call the slow dance me and the other op-shoppers do around the Crown Lynn stand at the local Red Cross, but today it takes on a whole new meaning as the latest gorge folk track from Michael James Keane's forthcoming album Wandering Bull. As with the other songs we'll hear on Keane's sophomore collection, 'Ceramic Tide' was written when the former So Laid Back Country China member made a home in the Wairarapa while training to be a stonemason. Untethered and dark, Keane dwelled on his memories of Pōneke and fell into a reckless era, "getting into trouble with my mental health and drinking", explaining the album title is who is was in that period — "I know The Wandering Bull is me, and I forgive him".

The effortlessly epic track is paired with a Sigrid Berge directed video, featuring charming performances from Wellington actors Samuel Austin and Ella Gilbert, giving 'Ceramic Tide' the cinematic treatment it deserves. Step into the surreal slumber-fuelled lives of a couple of dreamers visited by the Good Time Line version of Freddy Krueger (Michael James Keane)...

Michael James Keane's sophomore album 'Wandering Bull' is out early 2022 via Meow The Label.
