Belle And Sebastian: We Were Beautiful +FRISSÍTÉS: videoklip az új kislemezdalhoz

2017. július 28., 10:28

Az 1996 óta aktív Belle And Sebastian skót indie pop együttes a kilencedik albuma, a három videoklippel (The Party Line, Nobody’s Empire, Perfect Couples) megtámogatott 2015-ös Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance után 2016-ben egy instrumentális olimpiai számmal állt elő (Olympic Village, 6am), ám most 2017-re már kaptunk egy igazi kislemezdalt is a skótkockás Stuart Murdoch frontembertől és zenésztársaitól, akik a legutóbbi hírek szerint új felvételeiket egy EP-sorozaton tervezik megjelentetni, és rajongóik közül válogatnak modelleket a lemezborítókra.

A novemberben közzétett felhívásnak az első eredményét, négy fotót már láthatunk is a We Were Beautiful című első kislemez borítóképén, a tavaly nyáron írt dal pedig a zenekar szintetizátorosabb, táncosabb törekvéseinek vonalán halad: a breakbeat lüktetésű verzékről a Pet Shop Boys és a New Order is eszünkbe juthat, de aztán némi country és barokk pop díszítés után már kétségtelenül a Belle And Sebastian világában járunk, és egy monumentális refrént kapunk.

FRISSÍTÉS: a dal szeptember 25-én közzétett glasgow-i videoklipje Blair Young rendezésében!

I was black as I could be, hearing voices telling me “Walk away from everything”
Oh I wasn’t meant to go, far away from those I know, to some desolate below

We were in the urban scene, with the grinder coffee bean, where the women are oblique
And the boys are paper thin, ragged beards upon their chin, we were on the outside looking in
Rise above the present day, rise above the popular melee
I see you the way you are, I see you the scar

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful the years came, turned it upside down
We were beautiful before we got wise
We were beautiful with sky and blanket laying low

I am hanging on the line, I’m on duty all the time, I’m your Samaritan on call
I could try my best to heal, all the emptiness you feel, in the giving I will be a light

We were out to render roots, nothing on except our boots, we were intimate around the waist
We were settling our scores, we were healing over sores, we were living out the pleasure that we lost

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful the years came, turned it upside down
We were beautiful for all time and space
I will tell it to the sun and I will tell it to…

If you listen to the night, you can heard the madmen fight, hear the foxes making out
But the people all immune, sleeping silent in their rooms, growing bodies with their sleep
Making plans inside their heads, making love to shadows

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful the years came, turned it upside down
We were beautiful before we got wise
We were beautiful with sky and blanket laying low

We were beautiful before this went down
We were beautiful the years came, turned it upside down
We were beautiful for all time and space
I will tell it to the sun and I will tell it to your face
