Just Mustard share new video for ‘Blue Chalk’

Dundalk, Ireland 5-piece Just Mustard have released a new video for their song, “Blue Chalk”. 
The video was made with the group’s friend Seán McMahon and was directed by vocalist, Katie Ball. “The song Blue Chalk defines the heaviness that the whole of ‘Heart Under’ exists beneath. The kind that comes with grief and you feel like you are trying to navigate life with the weight of the sea on your chest keeping you down. I wanted to make this video since we started writing ‘Heart Under’ and to me it visually represents a lot of the emotion in the album. It was filmed in 4hrs in freezing cold water with the help of our friend Seán McMahon.” says Ball.

The video releases just days before Just Mustard embarks on their first-ever headline North American tour and the release of the deluxe version of their critically acclaimed Partisan Records debut album, ‘Heart Under,’ both on November 4th.

The special deluxe edition of ‘Heart Under’ will consist of a double LP housed in a gatefold jacket and obi strip, a booklet with exclusive in-studio photos and handwritten lyrics from singer Katie Ball, as well as an art print of English artist Graham Dean’s ‘In The Water Waiting’ painting that features on the ‘Heart Under’ album cover. Tracklisting and photos below.

‘Heart Under’ has been one of the most acclaimed rock records of 2022 so far, landing #1 on the Independent Album Chart in Ireland, and a current spot at #7 in the Metacritic Best Albums of 2022 Chart with an impressive score of 89. It’s an album that asks you to forget what you know – at every turn, reconfiguring and stretching the ideas and ambition of a rock band, and turns a year of lockdown and personal struggles into a breathtaking artistic statement. 

Just Mustard earned an opening slot on the John Peel stage at Glastonbury, with NME describing it as “one of the best sets of weekend”. The band also recently stopped by KEXP studios in Seattle for a scorching four song performance, watch that here.

‘Heart Under’ was primarily recorded at Attica Studios in rural Donegal (Ireland) with additional recording and post-production then completed at home. The album was produced by the band and mixed by David Wrench, whose previous collaborators include Frank Ocean, Let’s Eat Grandma, Jamie xx, FKA twigs and beyond. The title, ‘Heart Under’, comes from the lyric “the heart under its foot” from album track “Sore,” and throughout recording the band discussed the idea of wanting the listener to feel like they’re on a train going through a tunnel.
