Bristol-based four piece Get The Blessing have revealed the video for single Conch, given a visual makeover by filmmaker John Minton.
Still with their original line up of Portishead rhythm masters Jim Barr and Clive Deamer on bass and drums respectively, Pete Judge on trumpet and Jake McMurchie on saxophone Get The Blessing formed more than 15 years ago. Despite breaks to work on other projects they’ve built a solid following around their signature joyously sponteneous and infectious beats.
Conch is the latest in a long line of Get The Blessing tracks to be given a visual treatment by John Minton, known for his experimental, lo-fi, and hallucinatory style. He’s created videos for Noel Gallagher and live visuals for Portishead on tour among his other work.
