Alunah, ‘Heavy Bough’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
If you need some quality psychedelic doom in your life, we suggest you look no further than merry ol' England. The land that created Black Sabbath and Electric Wizard has also produced Alunah, who will release their third studio album, 'Awakening the Forest,' on Oct. 7, and we've got the exclusive premiere of a brand new track.
Since 2006, Alunah have trudged out doom psychedelia heavy on the groove. Led by frontwoman Soph Day, the Birmingham band is rounded off by guitarist Dave Day, bassist Dan Burchmore and drummer Jake Mason.
We've teamed up with the quartet to premiere the music video for 'Heavy Bough,' an addictive new track from 'Awakening the Forest.' The voice of Soph Day is hypnotic and carried along by a solid instrumental section reminiscent of classic Sabbath.
The video is captivating as well, depicting a hermit-like individual roaming through the woods searching for natural additions to a special potion. "Rhodri Thomas (director) and George D Sanderon (actor) took our vision, inspired by Soph's lyrics and Michael Cowell's artwork, and made the video into something magnificent," Alunah explain. "Elvaston Castle was the perfect location, and we are extremely privileged to have been granted access to such beautiful buildings and grounds. We hope you enjoy it.”
