Make Do and Mend – “Transparent Seas”

Post-hardcore act Make Do and Mend have unveiled a music video for “Transparent Seas.” The animated video was created by motion graphics designer Matt Frodsham. The song comes from the band’s debut full-length, ‘End Measured Mile,’ which dropped in October 2010 via Paper + Plastick Records.

Vocalist/guitarist James Carroll stated, “We already did a live action video for the record, and it came time to do another. We decided we wanted to do something that not a lot of our contemporaries have done, so we took the leap and trusted a friend with the project.”

Carroll added, “The song itself is about the inability to believe in a higher power, but being frustrated by the fact that that type of belief affords the believer a great deal of comfort and safety. I think that the vibe of the video fits those feelings very well.”

In other news, Make Do and Mend are scheduled to release a new EP, ‘Part and Parcel,’ on November 22 via Paper + Plastick Records. The EP contains acoustic versions of three tracks from ‘End Measured Mile,’ a cover of Touche Amore’s “Home Away from Here,” and new songs “Coats” and “Untitled.”
