Mockingbird Video

We had a great first half of the year touring across France, Switzerland, Germany and the Czech Republic.  For the new single Mockingbird we put together this video of tour footage.  Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it!  The single is available to buy through our website or through Beast Records in Rennes.  We’re getting ready to hit the road again in October, starting with 10 dates across Germany and then back to France in November, so we’ll be seeing all your smiling faces again very soon.

Down to the woods video release

We have never played this song live, and in fact it was written just the week before we went into the studio to record, so this video is the first time anyone has heard the song.  The song ‘Mockingbird’ uses traditional American lullaby lyrics, and so to make a beautiful marriage for our single we decided to write our own ‘rockaby’ for the second song, with a PR&TS noir twist of course.  We filmed the recording session in the SAE Milan studio, where we were pleased to work again with Ivan A Rossi, and the forest scenes came together in the Luberon region of Provence, with the help of director Zahim Albakri.

We hope you enjoy the clip, and look out for the release of the ‘Mockingbird’ video to follow next week.

You can buy your own copy now to receive an exclusive, limited signed edition.

that’s a wrap @saemilano

Thanks very much to Ivan Rossi and SAE Milano for hosting us for the last three days.  We’re super happy to have been able to squeeze in this recording session before we head back to France.  We even managed to film enough material to put up a video for both songs.  Later, people!  Right now I have to systemize for tomorrow’s departure.  And drink a beer.  Maybe two.  I think there is a pizza with my name on it.  Cheers!

Happy Halloween catch up

Have you got your costumes ready?  And your treats and tricks?  Halloween marks the end of the warmth and light of the summer and autumn months and the descent into the darkness of winter, with the clocks going back and the heating going on right about now.  With that in mind, here is a little round up of the last month since we got back to Milan after the summer.

We played at Ohibò, remember?  Way back at the end of September; it feels like a long time ago now.  That evening marked the release of the Devil Inside music video, and really was the start of the presentation of the new album.  Here is a photo from the event, taken by Antonella Ciliberto.

We played a Sunday night show at Twiggy in Varese, but unfortunately we don’t have any photos to prove it.  Alessio joined us with his cajón, which is a great instrument, and makes a nice acoustic show for us as a trio.

On Wednesday 24th September we played at Piazza Risorgimento in Milan, at a little bar named Trifola.  It’s very cute and intimate, and had a beautiful atmosphere.  It is outside with heaters, so thankfully for us it was before the cold struck.  Here we are, photo courtesy of Susan CS.

We’ve got a quiet start to November, leading in to a very busy run up to Christmas.  Dates to be announced shortly, along with the very special pre-order for the album – ‘The Rollin’ Pack’.  Till then …
