Crowning a week or so that has seen them celebrate the release of their glorious new Strike A Match LP with a sold-out Glasgow show, and a follow-up UK tour alongside Spinning Coin, Sacred Paws today reveal the dazzling new video for the aforementioned album’s title-track – and it’s every bit as effervescent and charming as we now expect from the band.
Brilliantly capturing the vigorous energy that rattles through their gleaming debut record, the new video is a colourful and vibrant display, directed by Jack Barraclough, that sings to the enrapturing spirit that they deliver in such exquisite spades across “Strike A Match”. Led by that signature beatific splash of guitar, the track itself is adorned by a glowing splash of brass that feels wonderfully celebratory as the song joyously leaps through it’s three-and-a-half minutes.
Just about as joyous a time as you can spend in someone else’s world, you can watch the new video below right now. The record is out now Rock Action Records, and you can buy it here.
