Cast Spells, the nom-de-tune of Maps & Atlases frontman Dave Davison has announced a new video for the song “Glamorous Glowing”. Additionally, Cast Spells North American tour dates in December with Steve Mason, formerly of The Beta Band. Please see complete dates below.
The video was directed by Behn Fanin — who’s also crafted eye-catching clips for Melvins, Tera Melos, Good Old War, et al — for Refused TV.
Davison’s heartfelt and charismatic performances are unparalleled — check out this Glass Room session video of “Potted Plant” (a different version also performed on this recent Daytrotter session.) The Daytrotter recording is a perfect distillation of what some have dubbed the Cast Spells sound as “Peter Gabriel leading The Shins.”
