Stealing Sheep return with ‘Apparition’, the third single to be released from their second full length album Not Real.
Director Dougal Wilson has returned for to the music scene for the first time in six years to create a playful, and ever so slightly coltish illusion, of a candid one shot in an unassuming village square witnessing a group of Morris dancers that are infiltrated by the band.
“We liked the idea because the English folk imagery juxtaposes the moody synth style of the music,” the band explained.
“The Morris dancing goes surprisingly well with the electronic drums and made us laugh! We love the dreamlike flow of the choreography and the camera.
“It was Dougal that first introduced us to a female experimental film maker from the 50’s called Maya Deren and her style really influenced our visual when we began working on our album, exploring dreams, subjective reality and streams of consciousness”
