Premiering online with tastemaker outlet Milky Milky Milky, Perth indie foursome STAPLETON have shared the official music video for their latest single, ‘Running Blind’.
The single, taken from the band’s sophomore EP Try To Keep In Touch, is a strong representation of STAPLETON’s artistic and musical identity. Steeped in strong songwriting and an intelligent grasp on tone and arrangement, STAPLETON have produced a clear statement of intent with ‘Running Blind’ and Try To Keep In Touch: Western Australia is producing some of the best Australian indie, pop and rock music right now, and they’re part of the new wave.
Directed by Cedric Tang and filmed by Tavian Ord, the ‘Running Blind’ film clip comes swathed in warm colours, matching the energy of the track itself.
“Thanks to a strange chain of circumstances, our singer Jon ended up moving house four times this year. We tried to explore the experience of creating the feeling of home in a new space.”
As well as the release of the music video, STAPLETON have also shared new tour dates for 2022.
Set to take them throughout Western Australia next January and February, with a special show in Busselton planned for December this year, the shows will be the perfect opportunity to experience ‘Running Blind’ and the rest of the Try To Keep In Touch EP live.
