On February 16th, UK outfit Tindersticks will return with a new album dubbed Fall Down a Mountain. "Black Smoke", the first song to emerge from the record, is a heady charger of tune, plump full of highly distorted guitar twang, do-woppy pulls on a mighty Saxophone, and a few rounds of soulful chorus. The band also shot a video for the tune. Check out the skinny on the visuals' two directors, Iain Forsyth and Jane, below. - David Pitz
About the Directors:
Over the past decade Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard have risen to acclaim making experimental video works and live performances mining music culture, including their 1998 reenactment of David Bowie's last show as Ziggy Stardust, A Rock 'N' Roll Suicide, and their remake of the videotape of the near-mythical performance by The Cramps at Napa Mental Institute in 1978, File under Sacred Music. Following a request from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, for whom they've been working with extensively, Forsyth and Pollard have started to expand their practice to work on music promo videos, viral projects and short documentaries. They are also ardent Tindersticks fans.
