SeaWitches Release Video For New Track Skylight Rising Liverpool post-punk/art rock quartet SeaWitches have just unveiled the video for Skylight, one of the cuts from the group’s highly praised double A-side single Tempest / Skylight.

The band's first formal release since last year's debut single Stars, the two tracks issued last month were produced by Bill Ryder Jones who has become an in-demand producer alongside his acclaimed solo work, with credits including The Wytches, Hooton Tennis Club and By the Sea.

Anchored by a sulphurous bass groove and SeaWitches’ hallmark jagged guitar lines, the promo for Skylight features mesmeric lead vocalist Jo Herring dancing in a series of spliced together backlit shots that breaks with convention by not featuring any straightforward band performance.

The accompanying feature on the single is the colossal Tempest (audio) which mixes the heavily reverbed guitar work of The Cure’s early albums and the propulsive energy of Metal Box-era Public Image Ltd.

Tempest / Skylight is out now through Emerald Eye Recordings
