Irishman and occasional actor Cillian Murphy (“Batman Begins,” “Disco Pigs”) made his music video directorial debut today with MONEY’s “Hold Me Forever.” The Manchester band, who are nearly impossible to find on Google, will be releasing their first LP “The Shadow of Heaven” on August 26 through Bella Union. The video follows dancers from the English National Ballet, as they pirouette along to spacey post-punk, as is traditionally expected of them. Broadly speaking, the band sounds similar to “Disintegration”-era The Cure.
They’ve been around for a few years now, selling out shows before officially releasing a single (they really are amazing live, at least according to videos on the internet), and they regularly post cryptic, all-caps statuses updates on Facebook, such as (all sic):
- BEAUTY IS A THING THAT KNOWINGLY EMBODIES THE VERY PROCESS OF ITS OWN DESTRUCTION. AND HAVING ACKNOWLEDGED ITS INEVITABLE DEMISE THEN CHOOSES TO DO SO WITH AN ELEMENT OF GRACE AND BEGINS TO DANCE.
Okay, sure! It’s a really enjoyable track, though, and I highly recommend checking out their video below:
