premiere: Videotape - Little Wolves

Spooky new vid closing out the Chicago band’s forthcoming sophomore album Underwater Weather LP.  Singer Sophie Leigh tells me "a while back, you published my letter, along with our song, ‘Monsters’. We’ve been working really hard on a new album called Underwater Weather. It’s taken a long time to write, and save money, and record, and to save more money, then record the second half of the album. We finally finished last weekend.” Worth the wait.

Video filmed and edited by Jess Price.

Our new album Underwater Weather is available for preorder. It’s a ten-track album. Three songs are now streaming on our Bandcamp page. 

Release date: 10/28/14.

Recorded & mixed by Erik Rasmussen at Observatory Studios during the Winter and Summer of 2014.

The split cassette via Impossible Colors. “Salty” by Videotape and “MDB” by Impulsive Hearts.
