Just Mustard this week shared their brand new single 'Frank', which follows on from a huge 2018 that saw them release their acclaimed debut album Wednesday and earning a nomination in the 'Irish Album of the Year' category for the Choice Music Prize. Along with the unveiling of the single, they've also shared the accompanying music video.

The shoegaze track features an array of hauntingly beautiful moments — particularly the hard-hitting chorus that will cause the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up. The surreal visuals take the track to another level. The artistic video features eye-catching slow-motion photography, and it's hard to look away. Vocalist Katie Ball told The FADER, "We thought it would be interesting to use stop motion animation to emphasise the broken rhythms of the song. Every character and prop in the video and their interactions represents a different musical or thematic element of the song to us. We wrote and directed it together as a band and collaborated with filmmaker Tim Shearwood who shot and edited it.”

It's busy times for the five-piece from Dundalk, Ireland, who is currently on tour with Fontaines D.C in the UK and France, have upcoming support slots with The Twilight Sad and The Cure, and appearances at Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape and Green Man.

Just Mustard have done it again with 'Frank' and we're eagerly awaiting to hear what they do next.
