VIDEO: Tuff Love – ‘Crocodiles’

As the countdown to the release of their debut album Resort continues, the bcf225b0-be09-45df-841e-b80f0a7787d7Glasgow-based duo Tuff Love increase the already eager anticipation by sharing the video for one of the record’s tracks, ‘Crocodile’.

Resort comprises the band’s three EPs to date – Junk, Dross and Dregs – listing all 15 tracks in their original order of appearance.

The video to ‘Crocodile’ – directed by Ben Cowie & Alan Cameron of Glaswegian collective Wake Up Advice – frames Tuff Love’s Julie Eisenstein (guitar, vocals) and Suse Bear (bass, vocals) with their regular live drummer Iain Stewart (also a member of The Phantom Band) in a roomful of mirrors. Watching Tuff Love perform the song (taken from last month’s third EP Dregs) through a partially psychedelic prism connects their beautifully melodic guitar sound from its late 60s genesis to its rightful place in the modern day.

Resort will be released on the 29th of January through Lost Map Records, preceding a run of shows both here in the UK and across the Channel in France.
