Watch New Video From Thrill jockey’s ‘Peals’

Peals share video for "Belle Air"

Peals (William Cashion of Future Islands & Bruce Willen of Double Dagger) has a new video for the song “Belle Air”, from the new album Walking Field out this week. Peals has a few album release shows this week, and will tour more in June.

As Peals, William Cashion (Future Islands) and Bruce Willen (Double Dagger) make gentle, nostalgic music that manifests itself in eclectic and sometimes unexpected ways. Using guitars, keyboards, toys, and whatever else they could find, the duo recorded the entirety of their debut, Walking Field in Willen’s living room.

The video for Peals’ “Belle Air” was directed by Baltimore filmmaker Zoe Friedman, originally conceived as a part of an art instillation in the Clock Room of the Bromo Seltzer Tower, where the video was projected on four walls simultaneously while Peals performed. She explains, “The videos were based on notions of time and organic cycles and phases. I used familiar objects and materials (like milk and oranges) that are easily identifiable yet take on new meaning when placed in a different context and time frame.”

Peals will be playing several local Baltimore and select East Coast dates in May before heading out on a wider North American tour with Small Sur in June. Their record release show will take place on May 18th at the historic Spring House at the Baltimore Museum of Art, and will start at 4 p.m. At select dates the band will be screening selections from If We Shout Loud Enough, a documentary about Double Dagger’s legacy in the Baltimore DIY community and their final tour. New Peals tour confirmations are in bold.
