Breakout UK act Working Men’s Club have shared new track X and its accompanying video, out now via Heavenly Recordings. Watch the video clip via YouTube below. Purchase or stream X here.
X is the first new music from Working Men’s Club since their acclaimed self-titled debut was released in the autumn of 2020. The album was the band’s perfect statement of intent and X functions as the delivery, the message, the action. X rides on a sustained attack and gives way to a glorious synth-heavy release of a chorus that’s just biding its time for a summer of discontent and dancing. This is the sound of your new favourite band hitting their stride. Count the days ’til you can see them in a field or in a club again.
X was recorded, produced and mixed by Ross Orton, the video was directed by the band’s visual team, Steve Hockett and IMPA TV. Talking about the video Steve comments: “The video is a visual exploration of the line “there’s no start to this end”. Shot in a big ex-industrial fridge by IMPATV, we filmed Syd’s live performance with graphic projections using live analogue video feedback.”
Having just played a set premiering the new track at this year’s virtual 6 Music festival, the band have announced a headline U.K. tour in November, culminating in their biggest show to date at the Brixton Electric in London. Full dates are listed below.
