Watch the video for Tara Clerkin Trio’s ‘Night Steps’ off upcoming In Spring EP

This Friday will see the release of In Spring, the new 4-track EP from Bristol based group Tara Clerkin Trio. After sharing the magnificent and mesmerizing title track, the trio of Tara Clerkin and brothers Sunny-Joe Paradiso and Patrick Benjamin have shared another cut from the EP called ‘Night Steps’, and an accompanying video. Speaking about it, the band explains:

“This is a woman, walking through the city at night. She’s thinking deeply about everything, sometimes existing in the present, sometimes in her memories, always set on the same streets. She craves the fleeting feeling when she can so easily mistake herself for anyone else walking by, any of the buildings, a cat in a window. She reaches the beach at the edge of her city as the sun’s coming up. And looks longingly at the horizon as the city wakes up behind her.”

Ron MacRae and Tim Webb animate and direct. Watch the video below.

We weren’t familiar with Bristol based group Tara Clerkin Trio up until now but they caught our ears on first listen, with their experimental and hypnotic compositions, flirting with a lot of genres like jazz, folk, dub, trip hop and downtempo electronica. With an eponymous debut album under their collective belt, the trio of Tara Clerkin and brothers Sunny-Joe Paradiso and Patrick Benjamin have announced their second release, a 4-track EP titled In Spring. The EP is described as “a record of subtle contrasts, experimental yet familiar in its intimacy, obviously modern though tied to certain lineages, and driven by a pop logic which is also free-form and seemingly improvised.”

In Spring arrives on October 1st through World of Echo but we can already get lost in their music with the magnificent and mesmerizing title track.
