Today British garage-rock collective Saint Agnes have unveiled the striking visuals for their latest single ‘Welcome To Silvertown’, taken as the title track from their debut album out May 3rd via Death Or Glory Gang Records.
The cinematic video is shot completely in black and white to encapsulate the intensity and rebelliousness on the single’s themes of escapism and energy depicted often in classic Western film. But we’ll let it speak for itself check it out below:
Speaking of the video, the band comment; “Silvertown is both the name of where the band began, from Kitty’s flat there, as well as the name for the fictional place where the stories we tell on the album take place.
“The songs are a collection of stories from our reality but dramatized, exaggerated lens; people we met became gods or devils, gunslinging heroes and villains in the songs. The characters we portray in the video are exaggerations of our true selves. Welcome to Silvertown, drive like hell”.
Alongside the video, they have also announced an October UK headline tour.
Kicking off at Jimmy’s in Manchester on October 16th, the group will make their way across the nation, stopping in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Sheffield and London, for a show at Dingwalls October 24th for their largest headline show in the city to date. Tickets are available HERE.
