Scotland’s exciting duo Tuff Love – Julie Eisenstein (guitar, vocals) and Suse Bear (bass, vocals) – announce their new EP ‘Dregs’, which is due Nov 6th via Lost Map Records and share the video for ‘Duke’, a gorgeously honest & crisp indie pop at its best.
The dazzling video is directed by Ben Cowie & Alan Cameron of Wake Up Advice.
The band reveal… “We spent 8 hours lying on the ground putting our faces through little holes to make the video for Duke. If you like stripes and patterns then you might like this. If it looks like we are in pain then it’s because we are – it was like doing one big long crunch for 8 hours. We did have some support from pillows for head support but they didn’t work 100%.. anyways we now have abs and we did not before.”
The lo-fi in ethic, but not in sound band, explain: “This song is based around a guitar melody that had been going round in the Tuff Love brain for a couple of years. It needed to have a home, so one day we wrote this. It’s about roots and growth.”In case you missed it , here’s ‘Dross’ E.P…
