Music Video of the Week: Creation- The Pierces
Our music video of the week is The Pierces’ video for Creation, a new track taken from the duo’s forthcoming album, which is due for release on September 1st.
The video for Creation, directed by Nick Frew of Dirty Robber, sees the sisters “play tormenters to a man who eventually discovers his own power and fights back to free himself”. Cat Pierce explained that the song is about “…how we sometimes suffer from our own invented misery and forget to just enjoy the experience of being human.”
The single sees a change in direction for the band, with a more free-spirited and bohemian feel inspired by the sisters’ move to California. There’s a soothing and melancholy sound to the track, which shares the melodies of their previous work yet feels more mature and sophisticated.
In support of the duo’s fifth studio album, The Pierces have announced a UK headline tour. Kicking off in Edinburgh, the band will play 10 cities across the UK with an appearance at London’s 02 Shepherds Bush Empire on September 23rd.
