The Beths share “Out of Sight,” a new single from their highly-anticipated second album, Jump Rope Gazers, out 10th July on Carpark Records. The band performed the single on their "Live From House 3" live stream last night. It follows previously released singles “I’m Not Getting Excited” and “Dying to Believe.”
“Out of Sight” is tender and shoegazing. It reckons with the distance that drives people apart and how those who love each other inevitably fail each other. The best way to repair that failure, in The Beths’ view, is with abundant and unconditional love, no matter how far it has to travel.
Elizabeth Stokes says, “The band playing on ‘Out Of Sight’ is more fragile than we usually allow ourselves to be. We are trying to listen more deeply and be more open-ended, it was confronting to do and sometimes even frustrating. But it came out great, Ben’s bass playing especially is beautifully melodic and gives the song a unique texture."
The accompanying video directed by Ezra Simons was filmed on Super 8 film and shows the band birdwatching amongst the brush. Archival footage of birds native to New Zealand are woven throughout. Simons says, “The goal was to create a nostalgic and timeless road trip video where the band goes off in search of native birds, but instead finds each other."
