Dublin based post-punk band Odd Morris have dropped the video for second single, ’Lilac Leaves’.
The video was directed and produced by Cashmere Media. Set in old buildings and decorated with history while the band capture their lyrics with minimal surroundings.
Vocalist Daragh Griffin says: “I wrote the lyrics to Lilac Leaves while I was sitting at my window-sill in my bedroom at home, looking out into the garden. A friend of mine had said over a pint that his relationship with a family member was the greatest lesson in empathy he ever had, which really struck a chord with me. Writing Lilac Leaves was my way of acknowledging forgiveness within a turbulent relationship before I moved out of the house I grew up in.”
Originally having met as schoolmates in their hometown of Swords, North Dublin, Odd Morris formed with a name derived from the author of their final year mathematics book.
They have just announced a headline show at Whelan’s in Dublin on Friday, 31 January 2020, with Aiken Promotions.
