Video of the Moment #2929: Meadowlark

Bristol duo Meadowlark have an intriguing new video out for their latest single. For ‘H.I.T.H’ (Hole in the Head), the director half of Meadowlark, Daniel Broadley, filmed this mysterious story of a young woman tortured by the memory of the man she loved. As most relationships do, things get complicated, from popping pills under the red lights of a rave to an amorous encounter that turns into a violent altercation.

Of the video, Broadley explains, “Over the past year I’ve watched Kate [McGill, his bandmate] go through some of the most traumatic experiences of her life, in every way imaginable. It felt wrong to shy away from that when it came to Meadowlark, grief is universal and something that everyone will go through throughout their lifetime and became a subject I felt was right to explore. This video doesn’t tell Kate’s story specifically, that’s hers to tell, but it depicts a particular version of grief for our protagonist, as it sends her on a path of self destruction, something she believes will numb the pain of her loss. The video is a lesson in facing up to things, no matter how hard and painful they are.” Have we piqued your interest yet? If yes, watch the video for ‘H.I.T.H’ below. This is their first release for German label Guesstimate. Meadowlark begin a UK tour on the 4th of April in Brighton. Past writings on TGTF on the duo can be read through here.

Video of the Moment #2198: Meadowlark

Meadowlark – the combined musical talents of Welshwoman Kate McGill and director Daniel Broadley – have announced they will be releasing their debut album in 2017 on Believe Recordings. This follows the release of two previous standalone singles ‘Paraffin’ and ‘Quicksand’, and they’ve got a new single and video to share with us.

‘Headlights’ showcases the Bristol band’s ability to write engaging and memorable pop melodies, and it’s a great harbinger of things to come. Watch the video below, which was directed by Broadley in one continuous take. Of the promo, Broadley says, “The video for ‘Headlights’ began as a creative concept, a video shot all in one take, seamless and constantly in motion. The expressive dancing explores many of the complex emotions that fuel a relationship, the passion, the rage, the bubble that encapsulates both bodies. Meanwhile Kate and myself weave in and out of this energetic routine, narrating the story from the lyrics whilst remaining invisible to the characters.”

Meadowlark begin their support slot with Aquila next week at Leeds Wardrobe; all their upcoming tour dates can be found on their Web site.
