Last year, Belfast post-punk group New Pagans released their outstanding debut album, The Seed, the Vessel, the Roots and All, and now they’re back with more new music. New Pagans have released a new single, “Better People,” via Big Scary Monsters. It’s a driving rock song with a black-and-white video, directed by the band and David McIntyre. Watch it below.
The band said in a press release, “The video was once again shot by our frequent collaborator and fellow folk horror fan Dave McIntyre on the rocky shores and heather filled landscapes of Malin Head. The stunning Irish backdrop speaks for itself, it’s free set design and if it’s there we use it. As always there’s a few sly references to our fav films in the video, and maybe a fellow film nerd will get them, but as for the plot: David Lynch said ‘never explain’.”
New Pagans’ The Seed, the Vessel, the Roots and All was featured on our list, 20 Great Albums from 2021 You Might Have Missed.
