Watch: Elastic Sleep – Leave You


Taken from their debut EP, Cork dream pop band Elastic Sleep have unveiled the decidedly phantasmal video for its eponymous single, ‘Leave You’.

Directed by Emmet O’ Brien for Thinking Cog productions in conjunction with Limbo, the murky, psychedelic video really captures the track’s stalking, woozy tangents. Comprised of hazy projections and leering silhouettes, it features Muireann Levis and co. performing the track as if on some subconscious stage; a recess of the band’s collective mind.

Leave You was released FIFA Records and Big Tea Records on 10″ white vinyl with a digital download code. Purchase it here and stream three tracks from the five-track release:
