Ruling student airwaves with 'Endless Night', the first single released under their new moniker Clementine Valentine last month, Clementine and Valentine Nixon (formerly Purple Pilgrims) have announced their forthcoming new album The Coin that Broke the Fountain FloorOut via Flying Nun Records on 25th August, the art-pop sibling duo have lined up a four date nationwide release tour for their keenly awaited opus, taking them to Aotearoa's four main centres in September. Recent special guests for Weyes Blood, the pair worked alongside an impressive team of New York producer Randall Dunn (Oneohtrix Point Never, Danny Elfman, Jim Jarmusch), drummer Matt Chamberlain (David Bowie, Lana Del Rey, Fiona Apple) and mastering engineer Heba Kadry (Bjork, Beach House, Slowdive) to create The Coin That Broke The Fountain Floor — the title alluding to "the tipping point extremes of recent years..."

Accompanying this morning's album revelation, Clementine Valentine treat us to their second single ‘Time and Tide’, complete with stunning visuals, directed by Greta van der Star and made with the support of NZ On Air. With grainy footage adding a nostalgic, timeless quality to the clip, the duo conjure up a fervent, sonic experience within the interior of a rural paint-stripped home, highlighting spectral vocals backed by melodramatic and dreamy instrumentation. Featuring Matt Chamberlain on drums and string arrangements by Randall Dunn, read what Clementine Valentine had to say about the track, hit play on 'Time and Tide', and don't miss them at the following dates...

“Without giving too much away, this song is a kind of mantra of radical acceptance. Our songs usually overflow with words and imagery, this one we consciously left open - you’re invited to fill the space in between.” — Clementine Valentine
