Clementine Valentine Unveil New Single ‘Selenelion’

    Clementine Valentine, the Aotearoa/New Zealand duo formerly known as Purple Pilgrims, have released their new single ‘Selenelion’. It’s lifted from their upcoming album The Coin That Broke the Fountain Floor, which is out August 25 and includes previous cuts ‘Time and Tide’ and ‘The Rope’. Check out the Britt Walton-directed video for it below.

    “‘Selenelion’ is a type of lunar eclipse where both the sun and moon appear in the sky at the same time,” the duo explained in a statement. “As a story the song is based on aspects of countless old folk songs and fables. A star-crossed dynamic. The meeting of a myological creature and a mortal, always ending in tragedy. The video by Britt Walton follows the same doomed scenario, set in a place dear to us – Hong Kong, where we grew up.”
