Gazelle Twin releases new single, Fear Keeps Us Alive

The single, out today (3 October), lands alongside a new video from Chris Turner.

Gazelle Twin is releasing a new album, Black Dog, later this month via Invada Records, and has shared another new single ahead of time. Fear Keeps Us Alive dropped today (3 October) and was played by Mary Anne Hobbs on her BBC Radio 6 Music show this morning. The single comes accompanied by a new video directed by Chris Turner with assistance from photographer Teri Varhol.

Speaking on the new video, Gazelle Twin a.k.a Elizabeth Bernholz said: “Chris, Teri and I share a passion for the weird and the uncanny. The film and images we’ve made together in various forms just wouldn’t have happened without their enthusiasm, generosity and genius skill.  Fear Keeps Us Alive is another brilliant collaboration and has produced such a striking outcome that blends so many shared ideas and visions so naturally.”

Meanwhile, Turner said: “I love working with Elizabeth and Teri. We share so many of the same fascinations and obsessions, and this allows an honest and creative freedom to exist between us. We’re also all lovers of ageing, imperfect formats of photography and video. The visual and thematic elements of the song, the short film, and the album all seemed to fit perfectly together.”

Black Dog is slated for release on 27 October. Pre-order the album here and watch the new visual in the player above.

Gazelle Twin will play London, Newcastle and Brighton across November, with a stop at Simple Things Festival on 24 February.
