Guy Garvey releases a video today for ‘Angela’s Eyes’, the lead track from his recently announced debut solo album, ‘Courting the Squall’.
Filmed at The Carlton Club in Whalley Range, Manchester by long time visual collaborators Soup Collective, the short sees Guy and band the focus of the attentions of a crowd of lascivious women and was inspired by a documentary on London’s 60’s strip clubs.
Public morality laws at the time banned naked women from moving so a man was employed to operate a curtain which rose and fell to allow the performers to change their pose. In Guy’s version the genders reverse and a crowd of invited friends and family of Guy and the band play their roles to the full.
Guy Garvey’s debut album, ‘Courting the Squall’, is released on CD, Vinyl album and download on 30th October 2015. Limited quantities of the CD and Vinyl come with a lentricular sleeve.
