I first came across Baton Rouge-based band ENGLAND IN 1819 in early 2011 via a link from a friends Tumblr. Both the video and song for “Trophy Sixty-One” caught my attention, and eventually landed an interview with them in May of that year.

It’s quite noticeable that the band has changed dramatically since that interview, downsizing from five people to the two brothers that originally started the group, Andrew and Dan Callaway.

September of 2013 brought the release of Fireball Electric Tomorrow, their third full-length album, along with a series of tours – the most recent of which has the band on tour for 50+ dates around the Mid West and East Coast.

We’re pleased to premiere “Sirens”. The band says of the video, “It’s an immersion into the experience of a trio of wood nymphs who, beginning as apparitions of smoke, awaken in a forest and lure us into the woodsy depths – the video concept is roughly based on a quote from Seanan McGuire“.

“Everyone thinks of them in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections.”
