The Bats Release Video for 'Busy’

The Bats Release Video for 'Busy’ From Their Album 'The Deep Set'

New Zealand indie-pop legends The Bats started the year off by releasing their ninth album, The Deep Set, and now they finish it with a new video.

Directed by Marc Swadel it sees the four-piece performing the track 'Busy' (off The Deep Set) in Christchurch Emigre, James Atkinson's, practice room under the arches of London's Haggerston Station. Filmed the day before their final show in the Tufnel Dome, the onscreen triptych also features footage from around London during the band's UK/EU summer tour earlier this year.

"Marc Swadel has done an amazing job of editing together band footage with some “busy” film of London's underground and overground using a wide triptych format" - Paul Kean, The Bats

________________________________________
Five years after the release of their last critically acclaimed album, The Bats returned with album number nine, The Deep Set earlier this year. The album continues The Bats’ 21st century resurgence. Yes, it is The Bats, so the chords still chug, the guitars chime, ring, and jangle, the melodies are clear and memorable, the rhythm section is unstoppable. But the band mines the darker, deeper sound that 2011’s Free All the Monsters revealed.
“..one of New Zealand's great treasures... anytime they make a record, especially one as good as The Deep Set, it's an event worth celebrating." - allmusic.com

"Four decades into their career, The Bats continue to produce sparkling and chiming pop that sounds as fresh now as it does when David Lange was New Zealand's Prime Minister.” - Noisey

"Remarkably, the band's original lineup remains intact. So too does that dreamy, disconsolate feeling that settles in whenever The Bats' best music takes hold and nimbly seeps under your skin”- PITCHFORK
