Pottery share new track & video for ‘The Craft’

The Montreal band who blew SXSW away have shared a taste of their forthcoming first EP.

Montreal’s Pottery have shared their new track ‘The Craft’, alongside an accompanying video.

The band, who made their debut late last year and, frankly, took SXSW by absolute storm, have offered up a new taste of their debut EP, the aptly-titled ‘No.1’.

Speaking of the track’s video - which comes directed by Bronwyn Ford - the band’s Jacob Shepansky has said: “With ‘The Craft’ we wanted to explore the unconscious oddities of everyday life and how an outsider alien (Austin’s character) may interpret these trivial actions. Each band member has a niche hobby (in the video) that not only lends for blind emulation from the outsider, but also represents each member’s individuality within our collective project.”

The band’s debut EP is due for release on 10th May via Partisan - check out the tracklisting and watch the video for ‘The Craft’ below.
