We shared Quiet Quiet Band’s excellent In The Body at the start of the month, but here is the band’s new video for the track.

The song is a deliciously lilting country-swing voyaging on a sashaying groove of woody bass and shuffling brushes, while violas flurry and electric guitars flare.

Telling tales of love, death and terrible beings from beneath the sea, Quiet Quiet Band are the rotting fruits in nu-folk’s verdant pastures. Extrovert practitioners of hillbilly hoedowns, sociopathic shanties and warped waltzes, QQB’s macabre alternative ditties are further animated by a vociferous lyrical delivery, drawing comparisons with such rootsy luminaries as Violent Femmes, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash.

They have unveiled their eye-catching video for Battery Human. A thrilling concoction of raucous aggro-folk, the track is the first single from their debut album Low Noon, which will be released in March.
