Glasgow four-piece Quickbeam are soon to release their new download 'Immersed' on April 29th 2013 ahead of their self-titled debut album due out on June 3rd through Comets & Cartwheels.
The video brings a strange metaphor to the song, and questions the idea of time and how people attempt to manipulate and even outrun it. It features a man dragging a clock out of the sea with a rope before changing the hands. It flicks back and forth to an image of singer Monika Gromek singing on the beach as a large group of people walk towards her. They check their fob watches before charging towards the man with the clock who runs, dragging the time-piece with him. He eventually stops and begins smashing the clock face with a bit of driftwood before dropping to his knees. The people chasing him appear not to be after all as they ignore him and carry on running straight past. It's a beautiful but poignant number, with gentle folk pop undertones and a soothing vocal perfect for times of contemplation.
The band; who are vocalist Monika Gromek, guitarist Andrew Thomson, drummer Liam Chapman and cellist Ruth Campbell; are set to launch their wonderful first album at an event at Glasgow's Govanhill Baths on May 31st 2013.
