Brighton-based indie/alt band CIEL have unveiled their new single “Shut In My Body”, and its accompanying video.
The song is out now via Jazz Life Records (Blood Red Shoes, Tigercub, Circe) and is taken from their upcoming double EP “Make It Better/Rather Be Alone”, out on Nov 24th. Pre-order it here.
With members originating from The Netherlands, Spain and the UK, the indie-rock three piece met on the South Coast of England where they distilled their differing backgrounds and influences into grunge-pop finery. Straddling the creative baggage of three countries’ scenes, whilst not really feeling like they belong to any of
them, CIEL’s music has a nagging yet fresh, dark and sometimes quietly glorious quality to it. Combining their love of fuzzy indie rock, 90’s grunge, goth and shoegaze, the band’s broody and gritty music is tempered by the soft, icy, but emotive melodies of singer Michelle Hindriks.
The video was video shot during their tour through Europe in September/October 2023. Watch it below.
