Jockstrap have shared their new single and video, ‘Concrete Over Water’.
It’s the latest teaser to arrive ahead of the London-based duo’s debut full-length record, on its way via their new label home, Rough Trade.
The band’s Georgia Ellery says: “‘Concrete Over Water’ was written on a summer’s night in 2019 in a flat in Farringdon which was above a pub, and above a train line. The place hummed when the trains went under.
“The video was born out of the celestial themes in the song. Eddie [Whelan, co-director] and I created the characters (Moongirl, Voyager, Magma Boy, etc.) to explore the feelings of wonder, inspiration and the search for answers, to reflect what the song represents to me.”
Bandmate Taylor Skye adds: “I can’t quite remember producing ‘Concrete Over Water’. I was living in my auntie’s attic at the time and it was extremely hot. Georgia sent me the demo fully written, then I sent her the song fully produced. That was it.”
Check it out below, and catch the band on tour in the UK from 29th September.
