Glasgow guitarist and singer Algernon Doll (aka Ewan Grant) unveils a new single, 'Spilt Milk Perfume', ahead of the release of his new album 'Omphalic' due out June 9th 2014 through Struggletown Records.
The accompanying black and white video, directed by Tom Mitchell, is brimming with bizarre metaphor and begins with a man sat smoking while looking troubled. He then starts splashing his face in a bathroom wash basin of what appears to be milk, before looking disturbed as he then urinates and vomits milk. Towards the end, he is seen lying on a floor covered in split glasses of milk. It's a guitar heavy track that's maintains a softness with its liveliness until breaking into some chaotic riffing as the video gets more and more disturbing and kaleidoscopic. It's an artistic venture between the song and the video and the two mediums complement each other perfectly.
Algernon Doll is known for repeatedly altering his unique sound and this new album is no exception. As well as this to look forward to, you'll also get to see him headlining a show at The Glad Café, Glasgow on March 20th 2014 in association with Pulse Community Radio. He'll be playing alongside Scottish trio Poor Things and solo musician Lovers Turn to Monsters.
