July Talk have shared an isolation version of their music video for “Governess Shadow”.

The song is featured on the band’s forthcoming album Pray For It.

Frontman Peter Dreimanis told Billboard that the song was inspired by his great grandmother Alice and her two sisters who “were sent to finishing school in Moscow as teenagers to learn how to serve the wealthy families of the day” He continued by saying that “it’s also about the deep imbalances of power in our world, and specifically how people are separated by wealth and gender.”
“I started thinking about this giant shadow that white men can step in and out of whenever it suits us, how we can simply decide when to break the rules and when to recite them… I wanted ‘Governess Shadow’ to raise a flag and a dagger and call out that comfortable complacency.”

It marked the band’s first release since 2016’s Touch.

Pray For It will be released on July 10. Check out the track listing below.
