Egyptian Blue Share New Single/Video “Matador”

Egyptian Blue Unleash New Single/Video "Matador"

Brighton psychedelic-punk/post punk band Egyptian Blue have unleashed their new single “Matador” and its accompanying video.

The song is out now through Yala Records and is the second taste of their highly anticipated debut album (TBA), it follows “Geisha” released in March. Get it here.

According to frontman Andy Buss, “‘Matador’ is a remark on the unwanted perils of keeping toxic relationships at an arms length, yet being unwillingly compliant and searching for the exit. I seem to recall the song coming together in a sole session after a 20 minute jam. With some songs you walk out of the practice room feeling excited and strangely liberated. I think that feeling was really captured at the time.”

Watch the official video below, directed by Jonathan Waller.
