Eels – “Peach Blossom” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Michael Nelson / December 4, 2012 - 11:10 am

Between 2009 and 2010, Mark Oliver Everett’s Eels released a trilogy of full-lengths in rapid succession, but the project has been mostly silent since then. Next year, however, Everett and Eels return with a new LP, Wonderful, Glorious, recorded at Everett’s new studio in Los Feliz, CA, which will be followed by a three-month tour spanning multiple continents. The album’s first single is the fuzzy, melodic “Peach Blossom,” and we’ve got the video for the track. The clip captures the band rocking out in Blues Brothers suits and shades, while Everett is entranced by a tambourine-playing manic pixie dream girl. Check out the video and tour dates below.
