New Zealand rockers The Beths share video for new single ‘Expert In A Dying Field’

New Zealand’s The Beths are back with a video for their new single, “Expert In A Dying Field.”

Today’s preview is the title track to their forthcoming album, Expert In A Dying Field, out September 16th via Carpark Records. The new tune is a chilled-back, wistful ballad. Throughout the song, frontwoman Elizabeth Stokes sings of trying to put yourself back together after someone important in your life is gone forever.

“I really do believe that love is learned over time,” Stokes explains. “In the course of knowing a person you accumulate so much information: their favourite movies, how they take their tea, how to make them laugh, hot that makes you feel. And when relationships between people change, or end, all that knowledge doesn’t just disappear. The phrase ‘Expert in a Dying Field’ had been floating around my head for a few years, I was glad to finally capture it when writing this tune.”

Watch the video for “Expert In A Dying Field” below.

Stokes’ songwriting takes a turn on this new album, landing “somewhere between being a novelist and a documentarian,” according to a release. “The songs collected here are autobiographical, but they’re also character sketches of relationships – platonic, familial, romantic – and more importantly, their aftermaths. The shapes and ghosts left in absences.”

Serving as their third album to date, Expert In A Dying Field sees The Beths channeling their live energy into a record.

In addition to the title track, the album features the previously released “Silence Is Golden.”
