'Bateleur have released a new music video, Mendota Sky, the lead single off their eponymous release due on the 5th of December'.
'The short film is a passion project undertaken by Capetonian photographer Kent Andreasen as director and Adriaan Louw as lead cinematographer. 'Mendota Sky' explores the darker sides of obsession and nostalgia, while remaining oblique and open to interpretation. The emphasis of the short film, as with Bateleur's music, is on mood, aesthetics and atmosphere. It was filmed and produced without any budget' says the band'.
'The launch of Bateleur’s self titled debut album will be preceded by an interactive pre-release, where listeners will be directed to a secret location to engage with the music in an optimal environment.'
