Belle and Sebastian Release Talk To Me Talk To Me Video

Belle and Sebastian released a music clip for their single. “Talk To Me Talk To Me,” off the group’s new LP, A little bit of the past. Freya Salkeld, 15, and Rosalie Salkeld (15 years old each) directed the video.

“We had a small budget to make the video and were going to make it ourselves, but we ran out of time,”Stuart Murdoch, the frontman, stated in a statement. “So we put out an open call to filmmakers who would be interested in making something for the existing budget, requesting an image encapsulating their idea and a 100-word pitch. The directors’ mother got in touch saying her daughters are fans of the group and keen filmmakers, and they sent in a treatment that we loved. They co-wrote and co-directed it, and got a bunch of their friends involved, and made a fresh and funny take on the song.”

The Salkeld brothers added, “Our idea had come from photos we’d taken of our friends for art projects. Casting mates we’d recently seen in a school drama production was really fun — filming them was even better!”

A little bit of the past, out now, was recorded in Belle and Sebastian’s hometown of Glasgow after plans to cut the record in Los Angeles were scrapped due to the pandemic. It was self-produced and includes contributions from Shawn Everett and Matt Wiggins.

Belle and Sebastian will travel to the U.S. to support the record later in the month. The tour begins at Rabbit Rabbit Ashville, North Carolina on Mai 24, and ends at Roadrunner Boston on June 18. In the fall, the band will travel back to the U.K. before touring Europe in early next year.
