Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

As already announced several weeks ago Boston’s indie darlings THROWING MUSES led by the gorgeous KRISTIN HERSH will launch their tenth longplayer, entitled SUN RACKET on 4th September. Pre-order info here.
“All it asked of us was to commingle two completely disparate sonic vocabularies: one heavy noise, the other delicate music box. Turns out we didn’t have to do much. Sun Racket knew what it was doing and pushed us aside, which is always best. After thirty years of playing together, we trust each other implicitly but we trust the music more” says Hersh about the new record.
The band gave us three tracks so far, firm rocker Dark Blue, darksome reverie Milk At McDonald’s and the puzzling Bo Diddley Bridge. And here – just shared – is the video
clip for lead single Dark Blue.
“’Dark Blue’ starts in California, drives to New Orleans, then flies to Reykjavik. I think it ends
in dark New England at a blue table covered in blue flowers; my kitchen by the ocean last year. Sorta grim, kinda pretty.Ultimately, “Dark Blue” says that in running from black holes, you only increase their density and drawing power. They will cross time zones to hunt you down in dreams and songs to tell you that you’re loved, whether or not you wanna know that.”
