Birmingham-based indie-pop band Spilt Milk Society have unveiled the cinematic new video for their recent viral smash ‘Amsterdam’.
The video (made by Sounder Films) depicts how two bored party-goers spice up their evening with a sneaky bottle of milk, soundtracked by the band’s slinky indie-pop sounds. After drinking some milk they return to the once tedious party to find that things have changed a lot…and things get weirder. The narrative ends with members of Spilt Milk Society, Josh Hyde and Harry Handford, being sacrificed by a ring of cows with a soundtrack of unpredictable psych-influenced guitar riffs. Watch the new video for Amsterdam here (a trippy, quirky short film – music kicks in around 50 secs).
Starting out at house parties and building up an online presence of over 150,000 monthly listeners and 3 million total streams, Spilt Milk Society have been described by Fred Perry Subculture as one of Birmingham’s brightest future bands.
