Edinburgh indie band The Last September unveil a unique video for their new single 'This Train Remains', taken from their forthcoming album 'Volcano' due out October 20th 2014 through Fountainhall Records.
The video features a man looking through some old diaries in a virtually empty room filled only with cardboard boxes. The visual has looped, animated and speeded up effects, courtesy of BAFTA winning stop-motion animator Ainslie Henderson. It echoes the erratic vibe of the song; a melodic ballad with a mournful melancholia about it, the chaotic drum beat contrasting beautifully with the gentle, rhythmic guitars.
The band; who are Pete Deane, David Bishop, Craig Nicholson, Archie MacFarlane and Simon Usher; have been performing a handful of shows over the year and plan to embark on a further tour later this year. Frontman Pete was previously involved with another Edinburgh based band, Suburbia, during which time he worked alongside producer Tony Visconti. Now here's here with The Last September's second album release, which depicts the rolling hills of Scotland with a grace and story-telling nuance rarely seen by folk tinged indie bands. The album follows their debut release 'As The Crow Flies', which came out back in 2011 and featured single 'Precious Time'.
