Scottish indie-pop 3-piece, Stillhound, kick start the new year with a brand new electronic tinged single “Walk In The Park,” taken from the new self-titled album due this March. The band are premiering their new video right here, and have also announced two Scottish dates at the end of March.

The guys had this to say about the song: “In it’s simplest terms, ‘Walk In The Park’ deals with loss, specifically the shedding of any complacencies that often come at the end of a long term relationship. So, if there’s any symbolism to be gleaned from the destruction of the death masks you may find it here. But I’d be lying if I said it were intentional. We enlisted the help of our good friend and long time collaborator Thomas Flanagan to whom we provided a very short brief which included nods to one or two indie bands of yesteryear whose gimmicky in-studio zero-narrative music videos had long been imprinted in our collective conscious. His skills behind the camera combined with a surplus of plaster and alginate resulted in the video before us.”

Show Dates:

03/29 – Edinburgh – The Voodoo Rooms
03/30 – Glasgow – The Hug & Pint

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
