Belle & Sebastian – “Sister Buddha” Video

Belle & Sebastian have quite a busy year ahead of them. They’ve announced a string of tour dates, including a stop at the Pitchfork Music Festival next month in Chicago where they’ll play If You’re Feeling Sinister in full. In August, their boat cruise the Boaty Weekender sets sail from Barcelona. On top of all this, last October the Scottish indie-pop group announced the release of an original soundtrack for the forthcoming British film, Days Of The Bagnold Summer.

The movie is based on Joff Winterhart’s award-winning graphic novel of the same name, and it’ll be the directorial debut for Simon Bird of The Inbetweeners. It’s a coming-of-age story involving a 15-year-old metalhead and his librarian mom. It is not seeing wide release until 2020, but Matador is releasing the soundtrack this September, and a video for lead single “Sister Buddha” is out today. The song is pretty classic post-mystery Belle & Sebastian, a sun-drenched pop rock tune with jazzy rhythmics.

Check out the video for “Sister Buddha” below.
