Stealing Sheep

Liverpool band Stealing Sheep have just released a new video, as well as details of their debut album. The video, recorded in the garden of Liverpool’s The Kazimeer, is for their latest single, ‘Shut Eye’, which may be familiar to some as the theme to the new Hollyoaks ad, and features the band playing the song amongst a troupe of other musicians; imagine ‘60s love-in meets Shoreditch meets MGMT’s ‘Time To Pretend’ video. Watch it below.

Amongst soundtracking soap adverts and partying like it’s 1968, however, the band has managed to record an album. Titled Into The Diamond Sun, it is their debut LP, following last year’s Noah and the Paper Moon EP, and is to be released on Heavenly Recordings on September 3. According to their record label, it is an ‘Olympian leap forward’ for the band combining voodoo folk, DIY pop, post-punk and analogue electronic. They are officially launching the album at a gig at London’s Rough Trade East, but can also be seen this summer at the following:
