Black Twig return with their third long player ‘Blaze On A Plain’, released in April 2016.
To assuage your appetite, the band share the first single from the album, called ‘1998’. Possibly the bands most melodic cut of music yet, ‘1998’ shares an affinity with the best music made with guitars, drums and bass. Yes, as the song intones, ‘it’s somehow cathartic’. Oh yeah, and did we mention uplifting?
“It’s not about nostalgia, it’s more like a visual memory. It is what it is. Shot on digital8 with our friends in Helsinki. We love you!”
The video is simply simpatico and marvellously unaffected and normal, it shows an usual but still wonderful evening with friends, that everyone has known it to happen. Chill with good friends, dance in a good temper and have a cigarette or a canned beer in your hand, you don’t need something else to be happy, this is what this video and the song impart.
