The Big Takeover is delighted to be premiering the new video from Saskatoon shoegazers Dumb Angel for their single “Like a Wave, Like the Tide”. The track is taken from their latest album, Broken Glass, which will be available for the first time as a limited edition 45 rpm double vinyl pressing from Nov 2nd. The LP was recorded and produced by S.J. Kardash (Shooting Guns, Sheepdogs, The Deep Dark Woods).

Led by songwriter Shaun Mason, the band take as much influence from Nick Drake and Bert Jansch as Spiritualized and Slowdive. Shoegaze elements are juxtaposed with quicksilver pedal steel guitar, lush vocal harmonies, and hypnotically layered acoustic and electric guitars to draw you into Dumb Angel’s singular, sprawling

The melancholic, expressive video depicts images from Saskatoon, delicately transposed over shots of Mason walking his home turf. Mason explains, “The video captures in an eerie way how I see Saskatoon in my dreams, or how I remember it when I’m far away from home. It is almost like I’m continually walking in and out of a dream or memory. Always coming and going, never able to stay in one place for long.”

Dumb Angel will be touring the UK for the first time ithis autumn, along with dates in Europe and Canada. Broken Glass is available HERE
