Tight close-ups of lichen-covered tree trunks and sunlight filtered through hazel leaves? Today’s EB Video Exclusive is undoubtedly a pastoral affair. Indeed, the critical consensus that Minotaur Shock‘s David Edwards has finally come around to the whole folktronica tag is leant further credence with this, the Torchy Design directed video for first single ‘Saundersfoot’. Still, there’s no arguing that the clip is the perfect visual extension of the track’s late summer mood captured within its drifting chimes, buoyant synths and live drums. An excellent entry point into his fifth LP Orchard.
