Soak Shares Video For Everybody Loves You

Tuesday, 16 October 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Soak has released a video for Everybody Loves You.

Director Joseph Wilson has complemented Bridie Monds-Watson’s rich, atmospheric ballad with a clip that utilises imagery - butterflies, juxtaposed colours and clothing - to explore ideas of acceptance and change.  Soak told NPR, who premiered the track:

“The lift at the end of the song ('Everybody wants you / And I do too') represents the almost comedic/foolish acceptance of my own feelings. A 360 turn of events in which I then so desperately want all that I had rejected and pushed away — a consistent theme of my younger self.”

Wilson added:

“The video expands upon themes from the song, and plays upon the idea of rejecting something that deep down you know you want, and flows from a straightforward narrative into a visceral, dream-like state, emulating the journey from reticent caterpillar into technicolour butterfly.”

Monds-Watson will release the follow up to ‘Before We Forgot How to Dream’ next year, with shows set to come in Belfast, Dublin, Manchester and London in November.

Soak Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Mon November 26 2018 - BELFAST Oh Yeah music Centre
Tue November 27 2018 - DUBLIN Grand Social
Wed November 28 2018 - MANCHESTER Jimmy's

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018
Photo: Lera Pentelute Earlier this summer, three like-minded indie-rock musicians began teasing their fans. Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
