Video of the Moment #2390: Saint Etienne

Legendary dance pop band Saint Etienne released their ninth studio album the first Friday of this month. ‘Home Counties’, on which they fixed their gaze on the commuter belt of London for inspiration, is out now on Heavenly Recordings. You can read my review of the album back here. Their newest promo video from the LP is for ‘Magpie Eyes’.

Band member Pete Wiggs says of the new promo: “The video was shot in Stevenage with its once fine Ladybird book New Town architecture that was a fleeting vision of suburban utopia. The director Tash Tung came up with the idea of an imagined younger ‘us’ spending a typical day hanging out in record shops and cafes – capturing the ennui and bonhomie of those years when you have no idea how your life will pan out.” Enjoy it below. To catch up on all of our coverage on Saint Etienne right here on TGTF, come through.
