Eagulls share old cinema-inspired video for ‘Velvet’

The Leeds band worked with video director John Minton on the clip.
Eagulls have released a new video for ‘Velvet’ – watch below.

The track’s taken from the band’s recent album ‘Ullages’, released last month, which they recorded at Nave Studios in the band’s hometown of Leeds. Find the album’s full track listing after the jump.

“I was a fan of John Minton’s work that he’d created for Portishead and was lucky enough to get him to work with me on this video,” says lead singer George Mitchell.

“We both share interests in old cinema and we saw Saul Bass and Fernand Leger as inspirations on the visual elements. John was able to adapt these inspirations into a modern take with a theme of love loss running throughout.”
