We’re very please to be able to today premiere the brand new video clip for Charm of Finches single ‘Concentrate On Breathing‘. The duo of sisters Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes continue their fascinating exploration of evocative and ethereal folk music. The new single is propelled by a rhythmic pitter-patter, baroque sensibilities via strings, horns and piano with the sisters’ beautiful harmonies soaring in effortless flight above the music. Their fusion of traditional folk and more contemporary indie-folk aesthetics makes for an intriguing sound. One for fans of Tiny Ruins and First Aid Kit.
“We wrote this song last year during Melbourne’s long lockdown, where we were staying inside and isolating for a long time. We started to look for ways to find calm and strength in a time where feelings of isolation and frustration could easily consume. Meditation was one of those ways and we found just concentrating on breathing was a simple way to melt away stress. This song is a simple self-reminder to do that. And realising that your body is a play of light and colour.”
The video dials into the stylised/noir aspect of the song, with a clip directed by the pair, with cinematography by Robert Redfern.
‘Concentrate On Breathing’ comes from their new album, Wonderful Oblivion, due 8th October through NYC-based AntiFragile Music.
