Video of the Moment #2113: Mystery Jets

The current Mystery Jets single making its round on the radio airwaves is ‘Bombay Blue’. The tune appears on the band’s fifth album ‘Curve of the Earth’, which came out at the start of the year on Caroline International. (I reviewed it back then, and you can read my thoughts on the long player here.)

The promo video for ‘Bombay Blue’ was filmed by Tobias Ross-Southall in Jodhpur, India. It stars their drummer of Asian descent Kapil Trivedi “as he travels to India to prepare for his own wedding celebrations, whilst at the same time re-discovering the innocence, warmth and magic of the culture from which he sprang”. (I put that in quotes because I wanted to be clear I didn’t write that!) Seeing that most of us probably won’t be able to make a trip to the subcontinent anytime soon, it’s a nice travelogue to be able to watch, soundtracked by one of the more chill moments on ‘Curve of the Earth’. Watch the video for ‘Bombay Blue’ below. For more of our massive back catalogue on Mystery Jets on TGTF, go here.
