Unleash your inner geek for folk indietronica and Game of Thrones out because New Portals has just dropped their video “Chasing Shade” where the duo (alongside some random dude) takes us to the “leadmines” of Newtownards that were used as GOT’s backdrops. It’s The Belfast two-piece revives our summer road trip spirit by capturing the streets of east Belfast and chilling in a burnt car like teenagers. Watch below:

“We shot the music video for ‘Chasing Shade’ opportunistically over the summer, in our practice space, the side streets surrounding our house in east Belfast and in some of the Game of Thrones backdrops in the “leadmines” of Newtownards. It features a burnt-out car, something that was a familiar sight from my childhood. The video also features our daughter, Freiah-Beth, dancing in the rain and under broken gutters on a typical Northern-Irish filming day. We actually decided to film ourselves whilst we were filming it, then ended up preferring the ‘B-roll’!” shared New Portals.

“Chasing Shade” is from New Portals new EP Golden Hour, which was released on October 30th and also includes the single “Sober.” New Portals will be playing a show tomorrow, so go catch them live:
