We are excited to premiere the video for ‘Sands’ from London dark-pop band White Fever. ‘Sands’ is taken from their new EP ‘Concrete’ on 29th September. Inspired by the legend of Pasqual Penon (the man with two heads), the song is about a girl trapped in her brother’s head. It’s about aching hearts and it showcases White Fever’s distinct blend of cinematic noir and dream pop. The EP is a collection of stories about love: the tragic love story of a brother and a sister, nostalgia, loss, abandonment and the uncertainty of how to love oneself.
White Fever’s passion for by-gone musical eras and cinema gets reinvented with a contemporary twist and sprinkled with elements of post punk. Coupled with singer Ida Jacobsson-Wells’ haunting vocals, their music brings to mind the likes of Daughter, Cocteau Twins and Beach House.
Watch the video for ‘Sands’ BELOW:
“We shot “Sands” last summer in various locations, from Camber Sands to the Barbican. There are a few themes running through the video, one being that the shoot locations represents sand turning to concrete and eventually ending up as sand again. The video also follows the songs’ brooding crescendo culminating in an ambiguous conclusion, inviting the viewer to complete the narrative themselves. “
White Fever are Ida Jacobsson-Wells (vocals/guitar), Seán O’Reilly (guitar), Joe Donaldson (bass/backing vocals) and Josh Williams (drums).
