Oxbow Debut “Icy White & Crystalline” Video, Announce European/UK Tour


Oxbow‘s new single “Icy White & Crystalline” has made its way online. The group shot the accompanying video for it with Kiran Acharya directing. The latter had the following to say about that:

“‘Icy White & Crystalline‘ is about as spontaneous as filmmaking can be. We had many ideas on the go, including an abstract graphic approach inspired by the work of Josef Albers, but Eugene found the set of The Snow Queen with 24 hours to go and said ‘this is the place.’ We loaded in, set it up as live, strapped an icicle to the microphone and went for it.”

Vocalist Eugene S. Robinson offered:

“Funny going all the way to a UK-based filmmaker/journo from Belfast in Kiran Acharya for directing the video for ‘Icy White & Crystalline’ but if you take the same elements and expect something different, you’re on the road to madness, which is precisely why we used wildly disparate elements to visualize our first ‘live’ music video for Love’s Holiday. Sixteen takes all the way through… ‘you don’t know how… hearts burn’ is the opening lyric. For probably the best of all reasons here: this video almost killed us to make.”

The band’s new album “Love’s Holiday” is presently on course for a July 21st release date. The group also have the following European/UK tour booked:
