Melbourne trio Huntly have been kicking around their hometown for a while now, forming back in 2013 and working hard to become one of the most exciting local acts on the scene. They’ve had a string of beautiful singles, and are quickly becoming a staple in the Melbourne gig circuit as they treat audiences to their serene blend of RnB, soul and electronica, but it’s their latest single, Sunday Sheets that has us really hooked.
We first heard the track back when it was released in October, 2015, and now have the absolute pleasure to bring you the first look at the accompanying – and very fitting – visuals. Beautiful songs need beautiful clips, and that is exactly what has happened here.
With recent Flickerfest award winner Nina Buxton as director, the spine-tingling, unpredictable and compelling Sunday Sheets has now been given a 5-star visual treatment. Filmed in black and white, the stark visuals follow four performers intimately as they kiss and love, as well as cut some seriously impressive shapes in a carpark. The track quickly deviates and so too does the clip, perfectly encapsulating the emotional nature of the song.
To celebrate the release of this video the right way, Huntly will be performing tonight at the Evelyn Hotel in Melbourne, supported by Galaxy Folk, Waterfall Person and Lucas George as part of World News Records label month long residency. The band will also be playing at Shebeen on April 1 with Saatsuma and Martin King, as well as officially launching their single on April 14 at the Gasometer.
