PURE X SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR ‘HEAVEN’ (below)
TAKEN FROM ANGEL, RELEASED 5TH MAY ON FAT POSSUM
“Watch it below, but be warned: The final shots have some deeply fucked-up images.” Stereogum
Austin band Pure X have shared a new video for ‘Heaven’, take from their third LP Angel, due 5th May on Fat Possum. ‘Heaven’ is is a dreamy, laid back pop / Americana tune that states ‘you can have it any time you want, heaven’s a feeling’.
Now, the song has been coupled with a striking music video, with scenes of demolition derbies, carnivals and farm life in rural Texas before some shocking images towards the end of the film. Stereogum went as far to describe the closing scenes as ‘deeply fucked-up’.

Angel was recorded to tape in a concentrated burst over five days at Wied Hall- a massive, rustic, 100 year-old dance hall in rural central Texas. The band isolated themselves to living in the cavernous space during the Autumn of 2013 after a year full of touring and writing on the road, seeking a secluded setting to construct what would become their most focused work to date. Recorded mostly live with minimum overdub, the results show the group of Jesse Jenkins, Nate Grace, Austin Youngblood, and newly acquired full-time member Matty Tommy Davidson leaving themselves totally unguarded.
Pure X are set to tour North America in March and April, with UK and EU dates to be announced shortly.
