Having returned with third single ‘Apparition’ from their second album Not Real, Stealing Sheep have shared a remix of the same track from Martin Jenkins aka British electronic music project Pye Corner Audio.
The video, a John Carpenter-esque take on the single, was directed by Dougal Wilson, in his first music video in 6 years, creating the 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 said.
“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”
