Made by Joseph & Joseph and Kit Monteith, comes the music video for “Terra”, the debut single released by new UK artist Toothless. Toothless isn’t a completely new and foreign artist to many though, the project being the new musical moniker for Bombay Bicycle Club bassist Ed Nash, though it does mark a definite step out from the band’s catalogue of work.
The single, produced by Nash himself (featured some addition production from Jack Steadman) and mixed by Chris Coady (TV on the Radio, Beach House), is pop music that hooks you in with it’s folk vocal tendencies and a dreamy, hazy arrangement. The atmospheric nature of the song is established early on with some striking percussion and rhythm sections, while an ethereal pop lilt behind the vocal adds to the dreamy imagery “Terra” evokes.
Nash says of the video, “One of the biggest reasons I wanted to release “Terra” first was because of the possibilities with the video. The song’s loosely about the death of the sun, which luckily lends itself to strong imagery. I sat down with Kit Monteith, who I’ve been working with to create all the visual stuff for Toothless, to sketch out some ideas and I knew I wanted the video to have some really strong visuals, rather than focusing on a story.”
