Ireland’s Gilla Band today share a new single and video, ‘Sports Day’. Their ground breaking new album Most Normal, which featured highly in Albums of The Year lists at Fader, The Guardian, Pitchfork and Irish Times is out now via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records.
The video for ‘Sports Day’ was directed by Michael Speed who also directed their previous video ‘Post Ryan’ and follows previous singles ‘Backwash’ and ‘Eight Fivers’ which had videos directed and animated by Mortis Studios.
Frontman Dara Kiely explains his thinking behind the lyrics on the song, “Sports Day is about announcing embarrassing facts (thankfully via a distortion mic). Weird lies you’ve told as a child, poor skills you once thought you were great at and repetitive lines that you still bring up to the same people.”
