[video] Treeboy & Arc – Retirement

Set for release on July 7 via EMI North partnered Clue Records, Leeds’ Treeboy & Arc have announced their debut album titled Natural Habitat. The first single out of it is “Retirement” — a fast-paced, dynamic song that showcases the band’s distinctive blend of post-punk and art-rock influences.

The track is out with a fun music video directed by Nicholas Sayers. In it the group is performing in the absolute smallest pub they could find in Leeds, with some retired folk around, completely unaware of the racket surrounding them. Instead, people just focus on enjoying their usual day-to-day hobbies.

New Leeds act Fehlt combines cold post-punk instrumentals and unearthly, shadowy aesthetics on their great new single “Light Porcelain”, which also features Boshe and was mastered by Simon Scott (Slowdive). 

It is released on Clue Records alongside the music video, directed by Ewan Barr.
