Ace French psych revivalists The Sudden Death Of Stars are releasing their debut album, Getting Up, Going Down on June 10 via Ample Play. They're preceding the long-player with a AA-side single, 'I'll Be There'/'Free & Easy', out on June 3, and we've got an exclusive first play of 'I'll Be There's video - watch above.

The cut's a swirl of misty vocals - delivered, much like fellow psych-monger Jacco Gardner, with an impeccable English accent - gliding organ and cello lines, matched to an excellent video, comprising sequential moving/still life shots, which is director Phil Miller's response to the song's subject matter, a deceased parent speaking to their child.

You can catch TSDOS making their UK debut at Brighton's Endless Summer Of Psychedelia all-nighter.
