Toy Mountains Reveal ‘Old Friends’ Video

27th October 2016

Glasgow’s Toy Mountains are extremely pleased to reveal an exhilarating new video for their latest single ‘Old Friends’ which is available as a free instant download with all pre-orders of their new EP I Swore I’d Never Speak of This Again which will be released on 25th November 2016 via Crooked Noise Records.

The single has already racked up spins from Daniel P Carter and Phil Taggart at BBC Radio One, Alex Baker at Kerrang! Radio, Aaron Phillips at Amazing Radio, Alex Irons at Total Rock and Roundhouse Radio, and more specialist rock shows.

Speaking about the influence behind the single and video, the band said: “With the first single we wanted to go with something that would accurately represent everything that is going on sonically on the whole record. We feel like ‘Old Friends’ is probably the most concise representation of all of our parts – jarring emotional heavy sections, riffs, math rock sections and a progressive build towards a soaring hook. Whereas other songs on the EP may alter the pace in the context of the record, we feel llike ‘Old Friends’ does most, if not all, in the one song.”

“With the video we wanted something simple that would capture the energy and the pacing of such a song. A conscious decision was made to veer away from the slow motion sections and closeups that have featured in our previous videos in favour of a mixture of tight wide angle and fish eye with strobing mixed in to give the video a more frantic feel.”

A progressive alternative rock band with strong math-rock and post-hardcore influences, this four-piece exist solely to create music without boundaries. The epicentre of the band’s creative direction has one purpose: to evoke emotion. Whether it be happiness, sadness or blackout rage, Toy Mountains ruthlessly ensure that any audience is fully engaged and will leave having gained something memorable from the experience.

The band will be appearing alongside fellow Glaswegian’s VASA this weekend at their single launch show. Further live dates and new music TBA.

I Swore I’d Never Speak of This Again is released on 25th November 2016 via Crooked Noise Records.
