Slowdive and Mogwai supergroup Minor Victories preview two new songs — listen

Intense audio snippets surface in a short film

Minor Victories

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Rachel Goswell of Slowdive, Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, Justin Lockey of Editors, and James Lockey of Hand Held Cine Club had all formed one big supergroup called Minor Victories and were working on a debut album. Today, we get a preview of that forthcoming LP via a short film.

Clocking in at about four minutes, the black-and-white clip stars a young man and an older shopkeeper, both of whom happen to have pretty great taste in music. Snippets of the very first Minor Victories songs can be heard around the 0:15 and 2:25 marks. Watch below.

An accompanying description for the visual reads:

This is Minor Victories – film one. You could call it a teaser trailer? Album trailer? album trailer teaser? Stripteaser trailer teaser? Super internet trailer of tease based on an album? Long player teaser moviefilm? The prequel to the sequel to the adaptation based on the remake of the original teaser…trailer…?

It’s not really any of the above… Just the First hello.
