New Disgusting Video From Picturebox Premieres Here!

Well, the video's not disgusting, you know? Rather, we're talking about the song called "Disgusting" from Picturebox, and the video is quite fab, actually. I'm happy to premiere it here today and very pleased to remind readers how fine the music of this outfit is.

Taken from the band's latest album, the sublime Songs Of Joy, out now via Gare Du Nord Records, the cut closes out that record in a whimsical fashion. The video, made by the folks at Young Al Production, features leader Robert Halcrow working up a psychedelic -- or is it C86? -- sort of vibe. The song and video sound and look like some lost gem from an earlier era of fantastic British indie and I say that as the highest sort of compliment. There's something very classic about the material of Picturebox and fans of Blur, Martin Newell, Close Lobsters, and The Wild Swans should groove on this one as much as I did.

You can buy Songs Of Joy via the song-link below, or from Gare Du Nord Records. For details on the exploits of Picturebox, including details on their upcoming gig in Brixton, check out the band's official Facebook page.
