Thanks to the wonderfully talented Perth based director Robert Livings we’re excited to present the official music video for Umpire’s latest single ‘Green Light District‘. For the uninitiated, the track marries Umpire’s sprawling indie-rock sounds and reflective melancholy, providing the instant gratification of massive sun-drenched melodies and soaring vocals. ‘Green Light District’ is lifted from Umpire’s forthcoming debut album Now We’re Active out in Australia June 2nd and everywhere else July 14th.
“Umpire’s breezy wide-panned progressive rock – smothered in buttery, reverberating humbucker tone – puts you in a daze … the full-length is one Ill be sticking on as soon as it drops” – Rave Magazine on ‘Green Light District’, their Single of the Week
“Once again we’re blessed with another amazing band brought to us by Hidden Shoal Recordings… the single is upbeat and poppy with a chorus that wails, featuring a guitar line mid-way through the song that would make Sonic Youth bow their heads. If this track is in any way a sign of things to come, then rest assured that when the album hits, it’ll leave fans mesmerized.” – DOA on ‘Green Light District’
