Yngve & the Innocent // ‘You’ve Been Released’ video
With all the talk of the Irish music scene, sometimes we tend to overlook some of our artists operating overseas – particularly in the UK.
One such musician is Sligo’s Yngve Wieland,who now operates as frontman of Yngve & the Innocent in London, having earlier released one of the best albums of ’08 in Tell Men This under his given name. Earlier this year, the band released their first proper EP, Nothing Was Delivered, launching it with a smashing little show in the Village alongside the former John Shelley & the Creatures (now Master & Dog).
Now, they’ve released a video for ‘You’ve Been Released,’ and I have to say I’m a little taken aback by how good it is. Much like the band’s music, a blend of contemporary Americana and classic folk and blues, the video is achingly simple but just very well-made. And they’re all dressed like dandies.
