H.C. McEntire Shares Video For One Great Thunder

Thursday, 12 July 2018 Written by Huw Baines

H.C. McEntire has released a video for One Great Thunder.

The song features on the Mount Moriah vocalist’s debut solo LP, ‘Lionheart’, while the video arrives alongside news of a support run on Natalie Prass’s UK tour later this year.

McEntire will open November shows in Leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Nottingham and London before setting off for Europe. Head below to stream the One Great Thunder video from director Vice Cooler, who said:

"H.C. and I met in the fall of 2016 while in London performing together for a Raincoats + Angel Olsen collaborative concert. We decided immediately that we had to work together more in the near future.

“We randomly ran into each other while she was in Los Angeles this spring and decided to make an impulsive video for ‘Lionheart’. From the point of us deciding to do it, up until the final edit, we just let it be what it was: a creative idea reflective solely of this unplanned moment, all completed in a 24-hour period.

“One Great Thunder is also my favorite song that H.C. has written. For me, it brews deeply in the feeling of loss, best described by Laurie Anderson as 'to live in the gap between the moment that is expiring and the one that is arising.'"

Sons of Bill - Oh God Ma'am (Album Review)
Thu 12 Jul 2018
Almost everything you need to know about the remarkable transformation Virginia siblings Sons of Bill have undergone on ‘Oh God Ma’am’ can be gleaned from its album cover. An old-fashioned colour TV lies on the floor, smashed and surrounded by dirt, its shadow eclipsing the light. The screen shows a grinning, optimistic, all American kid, his image bisected by the shattered screen. The dream, as they say, is over.
Immortal - Northern Chaos Gods (Album Review)
Wed 11 Jul 2018
Not many Norwegian black metal bands can claim to be a legitimate part of popular culture. They’re not usually seen doing ‘What’s In My Bag?’ videos or hanging out with Post Malone. Instead, they’re in the forest. Being grim. Being evil.

The Beths are learning Welsh. It’s a little after 10 at Le Pub in Newport, and the New Zealand indie-pop band are parroting back a few reliable words and phrases shouted from the crowd. They try cwtch and iechyd da on for size before Elizabeth Stokes draws a line under it. “We’re butchering this,” she says. “Let’s do a song.”
Bodega - Endless Scroll (Album Review)
Mon 16 Jul 2018
Bodega are the art school kids who might sneer at you for Instagramming a picture at their show. They’re the ones who, after a convincing “this isn’t satire”, order their audience to check their emails during the next song. Bodega roll out lines like “I touch myself while staring at your chat text box” and “I use my computer for everything, heaven knows I’m miserable now.” Their message: we are dominated by consumer culture and technology is taking over our lives.

Mon 23 Jul 2018
There are several ways for records to stand out. They might say something meaningful, or push the boundaries of a genre. Others are so good at purveying a particular mood and atmosphere that they don’t need to do much else. Ovlov’s second album, ‘TRU’, is one of those.
