Irish post-punk band Girls Names released their third album, Arms Around a Vision, back in October via Tough Love. Now they have shared a video for “Reticence” and announced some 2016 tour dates, including a stop at SXSW. Matthew Reed directed the clip, which a press release says “explores the contrast between human form and machinery. It’s a duality mirrored in the track where dogged humanity and discordant clang and clatter meet to stunning effect.”

Reed commented on the video in a press release, saying: “The band were keen to do something which drew on a tension between mechanical movement and the more organic rhythm of human bodies. I then put that concept through a kind of 80s art school filter, which felt in keeping with the mood of the song: using a lot of 16mm film as source material and a slightly old-fashioned approach to montage in the way it’s cut.”
