'The Invitation' is the first single from the band's upcoming self-titled debut album.
Dublin-based band My Sweet Beloved have released the video for their atmospheric debut single, 'The Invitation'.
Filmed in Dublin by Laura Sheeran with art direction and editing by Danielle Harrison Byrne, the visuals to accompany the dark track explore an unconventional love story in a brooding, candlelit setting.
The single is the first track taken from their upcoming self-titled debut album, and sees My Sweet Beloved merge an intense fever dream with sultry musical backing for a strong introduction to the music scene.
The song and album are the products of months of artistic endeavour, with each band member encapsulating their own, unique experiences from other groups in the past.
Danielle Harrison Byrne, formerly of the band Skindive, shines with music created by musicians Derek Byrne (Autumn Owls), Anton Hegarty (Future Kings of Spain, A Lazarus Soul) and Dan Devlin (Moskowitz).
Danielle arrived in Dublin from Los Angeles specifically to join Skindive, but she was “a singer with no songs” when the band fell apart - in her own words.
Determined to match her vocal talent with songwriting, Danielle described the forthcoming album as the result of a “long journey that I am now able to fully appreciate.”
With producer/musician Les Keye, Danielle produced and mixed the new album to fit her vision of what she wanted, paralleled with what her My Sweet Beloved bandmates could ultimately deliver.
