Not afraid to try new things, New Portals have revealed their highly entertaining video for new single ‘Stay Here Tonight’. The video premiered with leading entertainment site Pretty 52 who called the song, “the perfect summer anthem for when you’re driving with the windows down with the sun on the dashboard.”
The ‘Stay Here Tonight’ comedy short sees the Belfast duo hosting an episode of a bad 80s TV Show. They watch as leading Irish comedians Colin Geddis and Shane Todd, impersonate them, donning an impeccable Blue Steel pout, and inventing synth chord positions never before imagined.
‘Stay Here Tonight’ sees New Portals take their dreamy synth-pop to the discotheque in a blissed out trip of revitalised nostalgia. The late-night charmer witnesses Ruth seduce with a hushed coo, among 90s rave stabs and groovy swathes of synths from Mike.
The single received its first spin from Phil Taggart on Radio 1, who has previously championed the band at the station with their previous singles alongside Huw Stephens. New Portals have also been touted as The Guardian’s ‘New Band Of The Week’ among a wealth of further praise for the irresistible alt-pop duo.
The fast-rising duo are one of the hottest tipped new artists breaking out from Ireland today. Their irresistible take on pop is one of the most intriguing and tantalising new sounds this year.
