Since their formation in 2014, blues-rock powerhouse Saint Agnes have gone from strength to strength, releasing two sell out singles, a live EP and cementing their place as London’s most exciting live band. Now that they’ve released new single Sister Electric, on Death or Glory Gang Records, they’re pleased to share their brand new video by Ed Edwards of multimedia, award-winning independent film company, Ragged Crow Productions.
The innovative and atmospheric Sister Electric video was shot over two nights in a medieval house in Kent. It takes the form of a supernatural hallucination brought on by band members downing a strange potion during an occult gathering. The mesmerizing spinning room imagery was achieved by attaching a tiny camera to an electric drill, then painstakingly layering multiple takes to produce a psychedelic and dream-like effect.
Merging effortlessly raw guitars with true rock n’ roll swagger, Saint Agnes are a phenomenon that simply need to be experienced live, where a sense of unifying camaraderie fills the air and the atmosphere is thick with anticipation, something rarely witnessed on the London live music circuit. This new cut blends that electrifying intensity with beautifully harmonised vocals from joint frontmen Kitty Arabella Austen (Lola Colt) and Jon Tufnell (Lost Souls Club), and biker-bar rock riffs.
With continued DIY fervour, Saint Agnes released Sister Electric on limited edition lathe-cut clear vinyl that sold out in a number of days while bassist and gear-head Ben Chernett has built a limited run of custom “Fuzzy Agnes” stomp-boxes too. ‘Sister Electric’ was recorded at the analogue Soup Studios in Limehouse on tape and engineered and mixed by Dave Holmes, it will be the first in a series of singles released in the same fashion. The band themselves produced it and it’s the first recording done with new drummer Andy Head.
Saint Agnes are also pleased to announce their inclusion in the Hackney Wonderland Festival on October 15th alongside Mystery Jets, We Are Scientists, Swim Deep, Crocodiles, Demob Happy, Misty Miller and many more. Tickets are available here
