East India Youth, aka William Doyle, released his debut album 'Total Strife Forever' in January, it's been cited by many as an early contender for album of the year. A new single 'Heaven How Long' taken from the album is released on June 16th, featuring remixes by Taigen (Bo Ningen) and Perc.
Here are William's words about the video: "I was keen to keep Joe Spray on as director for this video because his contribution to the aesthetics of my album and its surrounding material have been a key part in whatever success they've found. Further exploring the themes and influences of the previous two videos, and continuing with the vague narrative we'd established, moving from the cityscape to the natural world, the video for 'Heaven, How Long' remains rooted in an organic landscape. It was clear after a while, though, that we needed to really tear at the fabric of the images in the end section of the video to match the song's dynamics and intensity, and this is where Dan Tombs was introduced to the process. Dan has been creating visuals for my live shows based on Joe's video work, and it's been a great collaborative effort working with him. I was really pleased that both Joe and Dan were keen to add their own styles to this video; together they've created something beautiful, schizophrenic and intensely visceral."
East India Youth is touring the UK in May/June and appearing at festivals throughout the summer. Full dates below.
