SerpentsLaunch Gig – Nocturnes + Hilary Woods NOVEMBER 13th at The Workman’s Club Dublin
‘Serpents’ is the third single from Nocturnes’ critically acclaimed album ‘The Soft Animal’. Serpents speaks to dark states of mind that can surround us as we make our way through life. It echoes loneliness, solitude and introspection but questions the darkness, calling it out; is it real, or imagined?
The video for Serpents was shot on location in Strandhill, Edenbaun and Knocknarea, Co. Sligo by Myles O’Reilly (Arbutus Yarns).
Myles O’Reilly on the piece:
‘We had a very simple idea…Pearse was to pick up a stone and climb the height of Knocknarea mountain and place the stone on the ancient cairn of queen Maeve. It wasn’t until we began rolling that the epic terra firma that is Sligo began to make the video for us. We did little and Sligo did it all. I’m proud that such an atmospheric piece found a perfect home in the sea, wind and hills of Pearse hometown.”….. Myles O’Reilly
