Watch – Belle and Sebastian ‘Poor Boy’

Belle and Sebastian have shared the video for ‘Poor Boy’, the latest single taken from their new triptych of EPs, How To Solve Our Human Problems, out now. Watch the video below!

Continuing the EP series’ nuanced exploration of the tapestry of human lives and interactions, the video, made in partnership with Tidal and directed by Oscar Sansom & Ciaran Lyons of The Forest of Black, follows the various goings-on of an apartment building, set to the songs addictively slinky R&B groove and soulful vocal hooks.

Belle and Sebastian will tour Australia this May, showcasing the new songs for the first time in a live capacity as well as playing the band’s beloved classics. Further tour info below.

How To Solve Our Human Problems has the classic blend of joy and melancholy and idiosyncratic spirit that has always characterised Belle and Sebastian. A double album’s worth of music – richly melodic, deliciously literate, as gentle as a summer stream but as insistent as a river.
