It may be only just over a year since Cork alternative rock outfit The Shaker Hymn released their debut album Do You Think You’re Clever?, but they’re not about to go resting on their laurels. Hence the release of latest track ‘Dead Trees’ early in September. A track with its roots deep in the lush and warm guitar pop of the late 60’s, with a hint of Supergrass, ‘Dead Trees’ is a charming and playful example of the group messing about with genre to see where the edges are.
Today, we are delighted to premiere the video for the track. Recorded on location in Cork City, the video sees a young woman, who seems to be in some distress, making her way to a number of spots in the city before returning to a flat to don war paint and dance her strife away.
If the track is any indication of the band’s direction for their upcoming third album, we are definitely in for a corker.
The Shaker Hymn’s new songs will get their first outings as the group take to The Stormy Teacup in Limerick on Friday 17th November; The Grand Social in Dublin on Wednesday 22nd November, and a hometown show at Coughlan’s Live, Cork, Thursday 30th November.
