Video of the Moment #2154: Heathers

By on Thursday, 4th August 2016 at 6:00 pm

Dublin-based sister duo Heathers have taken a decidedly different turn since we at TGTF heard them live at SXSW 2014, around the release of their second album ‘Kingdom’. Their signature sibling vocal harmonies remain. But in their newest single ‘Call Home’, the sisters Macnamara (Ellie and Louise, if you please) have switched from bright guitar rock to a darker, synth-based rhythmic groove. The new track has already received radio play from Amazing Radio and BBC Radio 1, but if you’ve missed it so far, you can have a listen just below.

The video for ‘Call Home’, directed by Crooked Gentlemen Films, features footage of Ellie and Louise in wide open natural spaces, seemingly without context or direction, perhaps as an illustration of the song’s yearning lyric “I’m searching for somewhere I want to know”. Near the video’s end we catch a glimpse of the sisters in their new musical context, having traded acoustic guitars for a synth keyboard and electronic drum pad.

It’s almost hard to believe that this is the same duo that gave us ‘Forget Me Knots’, but we’ll certainly be following Heathers’ new direction with interest. TGTF’s initial coverage of Heathers, including an interview from SXSW 2014, can be found by clicking here.
