Today is the official release date for Saint Timothy’s from Needle. The Scenery is the first video from the new EP. The images are from the movie Passages directed and produced by Tova Beck-Friedman. Dana Brewer-Plazinic is the dancer and choreographer. It was filmed at the historic Lafayette cemetery in New Orleans, with its above ground vaults and tombs.
More about Needle’s Saint Timothy’s:
In a small isolated California high desert town, with the keys to a lovely church next door, free to go in whenever, Saint Timothy’s emerged. Written from a very solitary place like a private journal, these songs are as sparse as a winter tree. Concepts of grief, searching and starting over, then longing for redemption are explored with an old pipe organ, haunting vocals and a selection of keyboards and pianos.
Saint Timothy’s is the follow-up to Needle’s debut release Songs Your Mother Never Sang You and was mastered by Kramer of Low and Galaxie 500 fame.
