INTRODUCING NEW MEMBER:
(BABYSHAMBLES / THE SUFFRAJETS)
Offering a first glimpse of the three-piece performing together, the video also arrives ahead of a wave of shows this Summer. Full dates and details can be found below.
Capturing a day in the life of JW Paris as they head to a gig, the “Sober” video finds them caught between conflicting perspectives of a world observed with rose tinted glasses, versus that in the cold light of day. As the band explain:
“The concept was to be a simple journey of the band making their way to a gig (Rooz Studios, where we rehearse) with flashes of those sobering moments. Visualising an abstract view of people who are only around you for one thing. Those who are only sucked into the idea of personal gain.”
As with all their videos to date, “Sober” was conceived by JW Paris, and co-directed in partnership with their friends at Gutterspace.
Ironically penned during a late-night drinking session, “Sober” is a track about those painful pinches of clarity, when the haze of escapism falls away to reveal the cold hard truth that’s been staring you in the face for some time. “Sober is more about the sobering moments of realisation that we have from time to time. Moments that cut you down from all gust of living and really make you think about where you are…” JW Paris say. The result is a racket of powerful grunge-addled riffs and searing proto-Brit Pop stylistics, that sticks two fierce fingers up to the posers, preachers and pretenders out there.
The title-track of an upcoming EP, “Sober” was written and recorded at Buffalo Studios, and produced by the studio’s in-house mastermind JB. Featuring the patently fuzzy guitars of founding members Danny Collins and bass from Aaron Forde, the mellotron and additional instrumentation come courtesy of JB and Andy Peck (percussion)
