Exceptional British electronic act Zoot Woman – Adam Blake, Johnny Blake and Stuart Price – share the dazzling video, directed by Uwe Flade, for ‘Don’t Tear Yourself Apart’, a wonderfully fresh and optimistic modern pop tune, released on the 18th August and taken from their long awaited fourth album ‘Star Climbing’ out the 1st September on Embassy One.
“When it all seems to bring you down don’t tear yourself apart, I can promise you better ways, we’ll be living in better days.”
On the video singer Johnny Blake says: “Uwe Flade completely understood ‘Don’t Tear Yourself Apart’ both lyrically and musically. He has made a video that captures the immediacy and emotion of the song perfectly, to give it a whole new dimension. There hasn’t been a Zoot Woman video quite like this before. It was a pleasure to work with him.”‘Don’t Tear Yourself Apart’ was recorded in a similar way to their seminal hit ‘It’s Automatic’, a simple song with minimal music written on an old Casio synthesizer and 909 drum machine.
On the album Stuart Price says: “We recorded Star Climbing over a three year period between our studios, working on songs and lyrics until we felt like we had found the albums direction. It is our most distinctive album to date, combining all our different tastes and styles into one.”
