Last month, Leeds's Eagulls released an excellent sophomore LP of dreamy, shoe-gazy rock called Ullages. Today they've shared a heartachey video for album cut "Velvet" that feels like a vintage 4AD cover made as a motion picture directed by John Mintons, whose work lead singer George Mitchell said he has long admired.

"I was a fan of John Mintons work that he'd created for Portishead and was lucky enough to get him to work with me on this video," he explained in an email to The FADER. "We both share interests in old cinema and we saw Saul Bass and Fernand Leger as inspirations on the visual elements and John was able to adapt these inspirations into a modern take with a theme of love loss running throughout.
