Hungarian experimental quintet Shell Beach has unveiled a video for their new single “Absolution,” taken from their upcoming album Solar Flare, out February 17th, 2023, via Wild Thing Records.

Regarding the video, guitarist Paul Somló comments:

“Shell Beach’s live show is at the heart of what this band is since the beginning, so we wanted to show a simple and honest reflection of us doing what we love to do most. The footage is from our live shows over the past 12 months where we played ‘Absolution’ live at our favourite home town venues Budapest Park, A38 Ship and Dürer Kert. Edited and directed Gábor Tóth (Harmed), whose past video credits includes work for Deftones and Volumes, the video includes animation featuring the mystical alien character and solar eclipse from our Solar Flare album cover.”

On the new single, vocalist Zoltán Bodóczy comments:

“The feeling of being totally left behind, seasoned with the already glimmering hope that one day this will end, because time will solve it anyway. This is also the tragedy of this lyrics, because the memories fade and it is no longer possible to turn to them.”
