VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘POSTCARDS‘ NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED JUNE 30TH
Meadowlark have today shared an emotional new video for their current single ‘Postcards’. As with all of Meadowlarks’ videos, ‘Postcards’ was directed by the band’s guitarist Dan Broadley. In keeping with the concept of the song itself, which is a message to an ex-lover, Meadowlark called upon their fans to contribute to the creation of this video and asked them to send in postcards with messages to those who have impacted their life in a significant way, good or bad.
Overwhelmed with the reaction to their call out and armed with a collection of personal and emotional messages, Dan then set to work, selecting the postcards that resonated best with the concept of the song and built the resulting video around these messages. The project as a whole has acted as a cathartic experience for both Meadowlark and their fans alike.

Speaking about the creation of this video, Dan shared:
“Postcards has such an honest and raw quality about it, both in the songwriting and the production,” says Dan. “I wanted the video to have these same qualities. Involving our fans has always been something I’ve wanted to do and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. We ended up receiving over 100 postcards, and each one was so beautifully written and so heartbreakingly honest. In the end we had to pick the final ones at random as we had too many favourites. I’m really proud of this piece.”
Whilst speaking about the song itself, Meadowlark’s lead vocalist and songwriter, Kate McGill shared:
“I think it’s so important to think about how you’re feeling, and even more important to note those things down on paper – which is why it was so heart-warming to see how many people got involved with our music video. There were clearly things weighing really heavy on people’s hearts, and the fact they came forward to say what they wanted to say was amazing. I applaud anyone with that kind of courage.”
‘Postcards’ is the title track from this Bristol-based duo’s debut LP which is set for release on 30th June via All Points (previously known as Believe Recordings).
Meadowlark released their debut EP in 2015 and spent 2016 sharing a series of standalone singles, steadily gaining themselves an enviable reputation for their captivating pop melodies and lush production.
‘Postcards’ brings together some of these previously released tracks (including Headlights, Eyes Wide, Satellite) alongside brand new material written during various retreats the pair took around the UK, working from any cottage they could find that had a piano. Free from distractions and loaded up with ideas gathered from observing the world around them, they used such spaces to craft the songs that form ‘Postcards’. Once recorded, Meadowlark then teamed up with Spike Stent (Haim, Chvches, Massive Attack) to mix the songs and ensure ‘Postcards’ is everything they had hoped it could be.
The band will debut their new material at festivals across the UK this summer, with further headline dates to be announced imminently.
