Blaenavon have released a video for Prague '99.

The track shares its title with their new EP, which arrived last month and follows up their debut album, 'That’s Your Lot', which hit shelves in April. 

Discussing the video, director Kit Monteith said:

"The song is so dynamic - intricate at times as well as soaring and majestic. We wanted to make sure the visuals matched up to this and developed a technique where all these sides could be seen at once; combining slow motion and normal speed action within the same shots. However, the track is more complex still, there is sadness yet strange celebration within it and this more emotive side is where we wanted to experiment in making Ben's psyche a character in itself. We wanted to create a surreal space where Ben could start to blend with a female presence and for this merging of forms to be the visual backdrop to the fragility, anguish and intensity of his performance on the track. It was also just a nice excuse to see a Blaener in the buff."

Having recently supported Alt-J on their UK dates, the trio will embark on a headline UK tour in November. Tickets are on sale now.
