Ahead of their highly anticipated self-titled debut album due out Friday 13th October, brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn, who form Ye Vagabonds, have released the second single from the album, “Half Blind”.
Accompanying the single release is a stunning new video made by filmmaker Myles O’Reilly, in collaboration with Ye Vagabonds, watch it below:
Talking about the video Myles commented, “It’s not often I collaborate to such an extent with the artists I make videos with, but in this instance, dreaming up video projects and seeing them through with the Mac Gloinn brothers also holding the paintbrush, is a pleasure beyond the satisfaction of the result. It’s an opportunity for me as a total fan of Ye Vagabonds, to step into their world, which resonates so deeply with mine. There’s something so honest, sincere, and unpretentious about their music, which for me is driving force behind most everything I create. So it’s a gorgeous match. We work fast, with ease, and few words exchanged. Thoroughly enjoyable.”
The single “Half Blind” is now available to buy from Bandcamp for €1.50: https://yevagabonds.bandcamp.com/track/half-blind-3
