London trio Mano's Daughter release a brand new five track EP entitled 'Shiver', out this week (September 22nd 2014) through Smart & Shiver Records. They also unveil a vibrant animated video for their track 'You'.
The video features a dejected looking man leaving a roadside motel and speeding away down a dusty road on his motorcycle. As he continues to ride through the night, the stars come out and he remembers a painful moment at a dance with an unknown woman who walks away from him. He stops and boards a mysterious spaceship before being jettisoned to space whereby the video transforms into a kaleidoscopic explosion of colour. Opening with atmospheric psychedelic whirs and continuing with tinkling synth bleeps and dreamy vocal echoes alongside a slow beat and some crackling bass, the track is an ambient number with an infectious chorus.
The band; who are singer Sarah Carter, synth player Matthias Garrick and drummer Dan See; have released the new EP as the follow up to their debut effort 'Smart'. The new EP also features the tracks 'What's A Girl Supposed To Do', 'Wheels', 'Little Heart' and 'This House'. There's no word yet on a possible full length debut album to follow.
