September Girls fire off new video for "Veneer"

14 October 2014, 17:47 | Written by Laurence Day

September Girls have unleashed their sparkly new video for their upcoming EP's title track, "Veneer".

Each of the EP's four songs was written and sung by a different band member, and they each have a few words to explain their input:

"Veneer - Veneer was written to stand up to the force that stifles creativity and expression. Like a critical voice in your head that tells you you're not good enough, it leaves you feeling empty and useless. "Seductive veneer" refers to the easy option, which is quitting. I think the message of the song is to ignore that voice and do it anyway - Caoimhe

Black Oil - Sarah and I started jamming out the music one day in the studio. The imagery in the lyrics came from a couple of places, the first being a dream I had, the second being some crazy stuff I had written down on Christmas night last after a few drinks. The meaning of the lyrics "if I could swim, I'd be dead by now" is about acceptance of ones own limitations and the realisation that perhaps sometimes your perceived shortcomings can be the thing that saves you - Paula

Melatonin - There are many things that can keep you up at night; Melatonin is a lullaby to oneself to try to keep sane when plagued with insomnia - Jessie

Butterflies - About navigating life after heartbreak, negotiating the balance between heart and head, abandon and protection - Lauren"

The Veneer EP is out on Fortuna POP! 24 November.
