The Jesus and Mary Chain Debut 1960s Inspired Video for “Silver Strings” Starring Izzy Glaudini of Automatic

In the wake of their performance at the Cruel World Fest in Pasadena last week, The Jesus and Mary Chain return with another offering from their latest LP, Glasgow Eyes. Released in March via Fuzz Club, the album is a testament to their enduring legacy. It stormed the UK Official Album Chart and landed at number seven—a height not seen since their iconic Darklands era in 1987.

Now, the band has kept the momentum going with the release of their latest video from the record, “Silver Strings.” The retro-inspired clip, a mesmerizing blend of enigmatic and dreamlike visuals, features Izzy Glaudini of Automatic wandering through a desolate landscape, clutching metaphorical silver strings, a vintage 1960s girly magazine, and a few wine glasses. The visual narrative exudes a unique fusion of Bond Girl allure and Lawrence of Arabia mystique, punctuated by the ethereal presence of the Reids, who appear like specters through flickering airwaves.

Directed by Ambar Navarro (known for her work with Weyes Blood and The Lemon Twigs) and filmed in Los Angeles by Navarro and Max Flicks, with additional scenes in Berlin by Carolina Romillo, the video is a visual treat. Watch the video for “Silver Strings” below:

Glasgow Eyes, which has seen almost every physical format sell out, will soon be available on a new blue vinyl edition, available for pre-order here.

Adding to the excitement, the much-anticipated biography Never Understood is set for release on August 15th. This volume, penned by William and Jim Reid, recounts the saga of one of Britain’s most iconic guitar bands, oscillating between wild humor and improbable poignancy. The book delves into the tumultuous world of brotherly discord, feedback-drenched performances, riots, battles with addiction, and the profound shyness of the Reids, serving as an unexpected homage to the Scottish working-class family.

Limited edition versions of the biography will be available in Record Store and White Rabbit formats starting September 5th, with the latter including an exclusive LP featuring excerpts from the book, narrated by the brothers themselves. The book is available for pre-order here.

Looking ahead, The Jesus and Mary Chain are gearing up for a rare headline tour of Australia and New Zealand, alongside select European headline shows interspersed among a packed summer festival schedule that stretches from New Zealand to Japan.
