“We filmed the music video for “Plastic Skeletons” in a venue called The Menagerie in Belfast,” shares Namoi Hamilton, aka Jealous of the Birds. “It has a pretty grungey underground feel which suited the vibes Libby and I were going for. One of my favourite things was that it was shot on film, so it has a certain texture and feel where all the colours are saturated. We just gathered a bunch of good friends together and played a mini gig blasting the song. It was insanely fun.”
Hamilton has been making waves in the indie music scene since her debut EP Capricorn, which she recorded while studying English and Creative Writing at Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Then following the 2016 album release Parma Violets, came a serendipitous SXSW performance that same year that ultimately led to the connection with Canvasback Music.
Hamilton previously shared that “Plastic Skeletons” was written once she returned from SXSW in 2016 – her first trip to America. There she had a journal that she filled with a collection of notes, and upon returning home, cultivated the song from lyrical and visual memories she’d stashed along the way.
Additionally, The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep EP will include four updated songs from Parma Violets mixed by Ben Baptie (Young Fathers, Daughter, Lianne La Havas, London Grammar). US tour dates will be announced later this year.
