With an extravagant title such as this, you might expect ‘You Have Saved Our Lives, We Are Eternally Grateful‘ to be some kind of weighty, over-earnest spillage of sentiments, however such predictions couldn’t be further from the truth. The stand-out moment from London trio Wovoka Gentle’s new EP (released this Friday) is a mesmeric bout of kaleidoscopic pop that feels almost weightless under the colourful swirl it depicts.
Following hot on the heels of the band’s sold-out release show at London’s Electrowerkz earlier this week, the new video, created by Olivia Norris and premiering below, acts as the perfect setup for the full release on Friday, providing a captivating visual accompaniment to the attached music. With shades of Dirty Projectors in the often mesmeric approach to its construction, ‘You Have Saved Our Lives…’ is a radiant and dazzling introduction to the band and thoroughly implore you to check it out below.
The new EP is released on Friday November 27th, via Yucatan Records
