Brooklyn trio Relations released their debut album, Songbirds, at the beginning of April. Drawing from a variety of postpunk influences, the band make dark-hued but catchy, danceable pop. You can stream the whole album at Soundcloud and we've got the premiere of the video for "School Safety" in this post. The black-and-white clip was directed by Geraldine Baron-Visher and Antonia Grilikhes-Lasky and follows two women around the city as their days glancingly intersect. You can watch it below.
