Just Mustard are a five-piece experimental rock group from Dundalk, Ireland. The band has already made a splash back home with their nomination for the Choice Music Prize (an Irish analogue to the UK’s Mercury Prize) for their 2018 debut full-length Wednesday. Following their strong start, the band are gearing up to release a 12″ split vinyl with two tracks, “Frank” and “October.” Today, Just Mustard are sharing the first of those.
The band self-directed a stop-motion video for “Frank,” a visual experience that aesthetically lands near the intersection of David Lynch and Pee-wee’s Playhouse. The song itself leads with a foreboding drones and a spry delivery from lead vocalist Katie Ball and tapers off with a cacophony of pulsating, droning guitars.
Watch “Frank” below.
