Last month, we posted the first single, the title track from British Sea Power‘s forthcoming fifth album. Today, the music video for the song premiered at MUZU.TV in alliance with The Guardian New Music. For the Brighton, UK band that seems to dwell in a non-specific era, a solitary bicycle ride through the countryside by a neutrally-attired femme naturale aptly conveys “Machineries of Joy”. The machine of transportation invented by the species who yields its capacity; yet at the same time, it challenges the machinist.
Machineries Of Joy available April 1 via Rough Trade.
