Published Aug 07, 2015Indie-pop outfit Sleuth are known around Vancouver as the band who won CiTR 101.9 FM's SHiNDiG battle of the bands competition a few years back. Now, they're preparing to release an album called Out of the Blue Period, and they've just shared a video for the track "A Finely Tuned Machine."
The song is jangling, dreamily punchy pop track. The accompanying video depicts a hard-hitting roller derby game, and we watch women in roller skates jockey for position while occasionally singing into the camera. It was self-directed by Sleuth and features the Mainland Misfits Roller Derby Association.
Out of the Blue Period will be released through Kingfisher Bluez/Jigsaw Records. The CD will come out on August 14, with the vinyl following in September. The band have a Vancouver release show taking place on August 14 at the Railway Club with Malcolm Biddle, Village, Zen Mystery Fogg, Tim the Mute and more.
