The Beths jump of a bridge during band practice in video for ‘Knees Deep’

The Beths are back with a video for their new single, “Knees Deep.”

The track comes from their forthcoming album, Expert In A Dying Field, out September 16th via Carpark Records. “Knees Deep” was actually a last-minute contribution to the album, but it features a pretty killer guitar line from guitarist Jonathan Pearce. The accompanying video follows the band heading to band practice, as members sneak out to jump off of a bridge.

“I’m the kind of person who wants to go swimming, but takes like ten minutes to get all the way into the cold water, slowly and painfully,” frontwoman Liz Stokes explains. “I hate this about myself, and am kind of envious of people who can just jump straight in the deep end. In a shocking twist, this is also a metaphor?! For how I wish I was the kind of person who was brave and decisive instead of cautious and scared.”

Watch the video for “Knees Deep” 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 “Knees Deep,” Expert In A Dying Field features the previously released title track and “Silence Is Golden.”
