English songwriter is
now solo after two bands.
By Mandy Rodgers
Following stints in bands Slowdive and Mojave 3, Britain’s Neil
Halstead is busy working on a solo career. His first album by himself was
released in 2002 on 4AD, but Oh! Mighty
Engine found a home at Brushfire Records earlier this year. You can read
the BLURT review HERE.
Halstead is set to tour the US in conjunction with his second
album and his new video for the song “Paint a Face.” The video was directed by Emmett Malloy and
shot in Cornwall,
and we’ve got it at BLURT. Check it out HERE.
