Death Valley Girls deliver new single 'Islands In The Sky'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing at the end of the week, Death Valley Girls have now dropped the final cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Islands In The Sky' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Dylan Greenberg, and follows on from the previously shared outings 'Magic Powers', 'Sunday', and 'What Are The Odds' in previewing their new LP, also called 'Islands In The Sky', which is out this Friday 24th February via Suicide Squeeze Records.

Speaking about the new offering, the band's Bonnie Bloomgarden said, "We wrote 'Islands in the Sky 'for our future selves, hoping that if we can share the secrets we have learned from this life, and all our past lives, we wouldn’t have to suffer or feel alone again in our next carnations! You are not becoming the best version of yourself, you are and always have been, the highest and best you, eternally! You may have forgotten from societal programming, how you were raised, trauma, or ancestral circumstances, but as you grow, try to remember that the highest version of you, is cheering you on! Sending you messages to pay attention to your intuition and trust yourself. To love yourself."

While director Greenberg added about the visuals, "When Bonnie approached me about making a video for this song, I was excited because the song connected with me immediately. The music and lyrics have a beautiful, melancholy optimism that called to mind a certain timelessness found in work by the Sherman Brothers and the late Burt Bacharach, with a rock/punk edge.

"The video was made remotely, so I wanted to put together an immersive digital environment for the band and the ghosts to be able to move in. My partner and I dressed in all black and wore ghost costumes they made and double exposed them into the video. It’s an effect that’s been done since the dawn of special effects by pioneers like George Melies, but with the benefit of digital effects allowing me to control them with a virtual camera. I wanted to make sure the movement, tone and visuals all matched the “spirit” (no pun intended) of the song and had a flowing, optimistic energy that I felt emanated from the music."
