NEW VIDEO. Stereo Honey. The Bay

Stereo Honey release their beautiful music video for 'The Bay'.




 

The track is a haunting and personal song about death, tragedy and physical connection. And the gorgeous video, directed by Isher Sahota, with its simplicity and potency doesn’t disappoint in reflecting the emotion of this tragic tale.

 

'The Bay' is the first track to be taken from their incredible debut EP Monuments which comes out1st December via Beatnik


The Bay

In 2004, twenty-three people lost their lives at Morecambe Bay. These were undocumented and exploited labourers trafficked from southern China, who knew very little of the local geography and, failing to heed the warning signs, became trapped by the incoming tide. Caught miles off the shore in the pitch black of night, surrounded by rising water and dangerous quicksand, all but one
of them drowned. Of the twenty-four people that went out onto the bay that night, only one was rescued. Twenty-one bodies were recovered from the water. Two of them could not be found.

 

Pete Restrick, vocalist and guitars said on writing the track “I was Thirteen when the Morecambe Bay tragedy happened. My grandparents had a caravan on the edge of the bay at Grange-over-
Sands. I remember me and my brothers playing there when we visited Morecambe, running out into the sand under the close watch of my dad who would loudly belt out at us if we ran too far out.


The lyrics of this song entail both a physical connection and a personal memory to an event I could not fully understand at the time. The bay is a love song written from the perspective of the two
bodies that were never recovered, clinging onto one another whilst the water rises around them.


‘Here comes the tide, wait for a lifeline. Place your fingers in mine, we’ll wait for a lifetime.”
