Exclusive: New Desert Blues release video for “Heart Like a Stone”

London-via-Hampshire band New Desert Blues have released an acoustic video for their song "Heart Like a Stone", filmed in a watchtower during a recent trip to Germany in May 2014. DrunkenWerewolf exclusively stream the film below.

The acoustic performance was shot and recorded on location at Teufelsberg, an abandoned spy station in Berlin, creating an atmosphere that only serves to add to the song's already haunting message. Directed by the band's own Gary Turk and Daniel Cobb in black and white, "Heart Like a Stone" transcends the average tour-montage fare to beautifully represent New Desert Blues at their most sombre - a treat we first witnessed thanks to a performance at Blissfields this summer.

Following news of a semi-successful Kickstarter campaign, New Desert Blues' session performance comes ahead of the release of their Ant West produced debut album, which is scheduled to land later in 2015. Likened to Calexico and "Morricone-meets-Jesus and Mary Chain" in our Introducing article here, they continue to impress with their epic, spaghetti-tinged alt-rock. Armed with a mounting back catalogue and a headline show at London's Waiting Room confirmed for 4th February 2015, it surely won't be long before hype takes hold of the band.
