Just Mustard, a five-piece band from Dundalk, Ireland, quietly released their debut album Wednesday in 2018. It's a shame more wasn't made about the group's intense and rich shoegaze-meets-noise sound but they're already back with new material in the shape of "Frank," a tense and atmospheric taste of darkness that offers the perfect introduction into the band's work. "I watch TV to fall asleep," sings Katie Ball over an industrial beat, later adding: "I can fly in my dreams."
A video for "Frank" is premiering above. Speaking to The FADER about the visuals, Ball explained: “We thought it would be interesting to use stop motion animation to emphasise the broken rhythms of the song. Every character and prop in the video and their interactions represents a different musical or thematic element of the song to us. We wrote and directed it together as a band and collaborated with filmmaker Tim Shearwood who shot and edited it.”
Check out the "Frank" video above. Just Mustard are on tour in the U.K. with Fontaines D.C. throughout April.
