I was talking to my friend recently, and we were discussing the merits of making music videos in the modern age. It’s become much easier to put a visual accompaniment out into the world, but the majority of the time, it doesn’t seem worth it. Our conclusion was if you’re going to do it, do it right. And that’s precisely what Barringtone have done with the video for their fantastic new single, Foxes & Brimstone.
A hugely unique band, Barringtone stand out from the crowd with their incredibly eclectic range of sounds and musical scope. Foxes & Brimstone is a song that reflects the best parts of modern prog acts such as King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, whilst remaining noticeably original and special. The set of images that are presented in the video are suitably psychedelic and exciting, and I found myself watching it several times before I felt confident enough to begin writing this premiere.
Setting the mood for their upcoming debut album, Bonanza Plan (out 21st August), Barringtone are unashamedly presenting their incredible musical abilities in style. They’ll no doubt attract rave reviews for the approaching collection of songs, and I, for one, will be downloading it as soon as I get the chance. For now, I’ll just hit play on Foxes & Brimstone a couple more times.
