Just Mustard have revealed a new single, with a visual accompaniment. ‘Seven’, out on their DIY label Pizza Pizza Records, was produced by the Dundalk band and Chris Ryan, whilst the video is a collaboration between vocalist Katie Ball and guitarist David Noonan alongside Graham Patterson. “Through the imagery we explored themes of perspective, perception and faith, taking inspiration from the lyrics,” says Ball on the video. “Most of the props in the video are things from my bedroom that we made into villains. We were interested in using mixed media in the storytelling so we included some paintings and made some stop motion animation too.”

Occupying the most blistering and jagged end of the sonic spectrum, Just Mustard have been treading the razor sharp cliff edge between light and dark sounds with their latest releases ‘Frank’ and ‘October’, but on ‘Seven’ this dichotomy comes into its own. Katie Ball’s transcendental vocal takes you to seventh heaven, while the rumbling bass and smoky grinding guitar haze anchors you in some kind of deeper underworld.

To let the light in, you must first confront the dark head on – there’s a sense of being pulled between the two, with her tone perfectly poised somewhere between sinister and saintly, with themes of religion, belief and perception threading throughout the lyrics.

Just Mustard have also just announced a UK headline tour, starting in Edinburgh on October
