Today Auckland's shoe-psychgaze band Bespin release their debut video for their second single, Take Control. The track was recorded in a hidden Grey Lynn attic in the home of main guy Jonathan Lee (Cut Off Your Hands). The band also features members of DHDFD's (Joel Beeby) and Tiny Ruins (Alex Freer).
Bespin are nominated for the Critics Choice Award in New Zealand (see Noisy profile here), and have also played St Jerome's Laneway Festival, Camp A Low Hum and The Others Way Festival.
Bespin are also releasing their debut EP "Osiris" next Friday on 30th October, via Flying Out. Featuring five tracks, the EP is a woozy fuzz Gigantor, careering out of control down an 8-bit space age freeway - much like their debut video - animated and directed by Paul Roper.
