Today marks the release of the new Book Club EP, Shapes On the Water, and to help promote the record the band has also unveiled a video for the EPs first single, “Oh! You Lied.” Conceived and created by Emer Reilly and band frontman Robbie Horlick, the video utilizes classic claymation and stop-motion techniques to lead viewers on a journey alongside a lovable mouse-chucking, air balloon-piloting, space-to-Earth-plummeting sasquatch, whom the group has affectionately come to call Frank. Shot entirely on an iPhone, the candy-colored visuals are bold and vibrant, presenting a nice contrast to the song’s melancholy, bittersweet vibe. Check it out above and then make sure to head over to Book Club’s Bandcamp page where you can grab the five-song Shapes On the Water for free.
Book Club will celebrate the release of Shapes On the Water this Saturday night, November 17th at the Earl. Supporting them will be Blake Rainey & His Demons and Jeremy Ray who will both be celebrating EP releases of their own. Doors open at 9pm. Admission is $7.
