New Portals release video for new single ‘Chasing Shade’
Belfast duo New Portals have premiered the visuals for their brand new single, Chasing Shade. this is a moving ballad with reverberating pianos and a solemn drum rull laying the foundations for the pair’s beautiful harmonies. Chasing Shade is the latest to be taken from their recently released Golden Hour EP. Watch the visuals below!

Regarding the video New Portals’ Mike Aicken says,
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’!

On the Golden Hour EP the band say,
This is our most honest and delicate release to date. We’ve tackled issues that aren’t necessarily in vogue. Discontent, sobriety, dissatisfaction. Production on the Golden Hour EP turned out differently from what we had envisioned. We booked studio time to make a simple acoustic record but couldn’t get away from adding in some synths and vibey electric guitar, so we just went with it. The EP ended up as a blend between folk and electronica.
