On Friday 25th February, Sunderland cinematic alt-pop songwriter Marc Bird is set to release Moon Puddles, the first single from his self-produced album set to be released later this year. The track is a captivating slice of chamber pop that tells an abstract tale of lost love and heartache. Its hypnotic blend of Donovan-esque vocals, Suicide style sonic ambience and chic, lounge music instrumentation (reminiscent of Jonathan Bree) creates a haunting yet tender sound that would fit nicely in the opening credits of a stylish art-house detective show in the mid-t0-late sixties.

We’re delighted to be given an exclusive look at the Lynchian visuals that accompany the single. Here, Marc tells us more about the video…

“The video was made by myself. It’s a lyric video, filmed in black and white with bold yellow titles and subtitles. The video features a stainless steel kitchen sink being filled with water. The whole thing was filmed through a circular filter, to make the footage appear moon-like which links in with the themes and titles of the song.”
