Premiere: New video from cinematic psych duo Saint AgnesCinematic psych duo Saint Agnes, who Louder Than War readers will remember were a “new artist of the day” last year, released a brilliant new single a couple of weeks ago. The B side now has an accompanying video, directed by film maker Mario Benedetti, which we’re thrilled to be able to premiere for you today.

The single, titled Old Bone Rattle and b/w Roadhouse Blues (yes, that’s a cover of The Doors’ song), showcases their trippy Western inspired psychedelic-rock style to perfection. Released through London based Energy Snake Records it’s “raw, bold and sultry” stylings are perfect for the balmy summer days we seem to be enjoying at the moment.

In his Louder Than War article about the band Chris Hearn said:

‘This is Tarantino/Lynch style, warped, twisted psychedelic, & Western inspired music  heavy and Southern, and then drifts off into the desert, dazed by the scorching sun, dehydration, hallucinations and talking snakes territory”.

Describing how the band met and developed their sound we’re told:

“Jon and Kitty met at a gig whilst playing in their respective bands and quickly bonded over their mutual love of Nick Cave and Jack White. In Kitty’s East London flat they experimented with ghostly guitar reverb, swirling Hammond organ and dirty blues harmonica, the result is brooding psycha-western no-nonsense rock n’ roll at its best; think Black Rebel Motorcycle Club with Ray Manzarek on keys and Kills-esque dual vocals.

Saint Agnes play Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, London w/Black Market Karma on 18th July.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
