Irish indie group Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra (PCRO) explore the unsent letter in the new music video for their track, 'Empty Envelope.'
Directed by Irish artist Hollie Gilson, the video is a surreal dreamscape with vignettes of past, present, and future. With the track, PCRO detail the process of moving on from an emotional experience and the moments of clarity and confusion surrounding it.
The track draws comparisons to Cocteau Twins, The Cranberries and Lush with its '90s shoegaze, grunge influences. The song was inspired by a dream lead singer Sarah Deegan had in which she received an empty letter in the post.
"It's about the cyclical nature of bad decisions," Deegan explained. "Empty envelope examines the process of burning everything down to rebuild from the ashes."
The group is made up of songwriter/guitarist Deegan and drummer Danni Nolan, who met through the gig circuit of Dublin's underground music scene. This latest single was recorded by PCRO in Crossroads Recording Studios in Kilkenny.
To coincide with the video release, an "Unsent Letter Kit' has been released as merch. The kit includes a letter writing kit with a lighter for burning your letter after writing it.
The indie outfit appeared at this year's Ireland Music Week showcase and have recently played two sold out headline shows in Dublin's Workman's Club and Sin E.
In other Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra news, the group supported both Silverbacks and M(h)aol in recent months and plan to support fellow indie group Careerist in Belfast this month. Stay tuned: the PCRO crew are currently working on finishing their debut album.
