Puppy have released a video for their track Powder Blue, taken from their iii EP.
“Powder Blue is the first song on our last EP, iii. We called it that because it was our third EP, and because there are three of us in the band. For whatever reason, triptychs, triplets, three-pieces & trilogies felt quite important to us at that point,” the band explain.
“The whole idea with the songs on iii was that they should sound like what they are; three people in a room together, with little to no over-dubs, add-ons or studio wizardry.”
Last year the band created a treatment for the video which included pyro, stage props and lighting, but after facing some issues and without planning it that way, the band were filmed playing a ‘socially distanced show’ to an empty room.
“It’s fitting then that, because of world events, the video ended up mirroring this concept in its simplicity,” they add. “We had a lot of ambitious ideas for this video going into it, and for many reasons these didn’t exactly play out how we’d hoped. But we like this video now precisely because of its limitations; because, like the EP, it’s a record of three people coming together to try and make something bigger than the sum of their parts. The fact that we failed miserably doesn’t seem to matter as much now.”
Puppy released their iii EP digitally last year via Spinefarm Records and will release the record on translucent green vinyl on 22nd May. Pre-orders are available HERE.
