Lacuna Common have shared a new single ‘Window Pane’.
A top draw indie gem, the track is taken from their forthcoming EP ‘It’s All Talk’ – due May 2021.
“It’s a song about the feeling of that “normal life”, cleaning your car on a Sunday, keeping up appearances with your neighbours, doing the same routine week in week out, dreaming about ways your life could be different,” says lead singer and chief lyricist Alfie Frank. “You can see it isn’t for you and that you don’t want to end up like everybody else. There’s also a sense of knowing that the likelihood of this happening is very high and that it’s not at all a bad thing. After all, there’s still something cool in finding the romance in going shopping and locking eyes with a beautiful girl/boy and wondering what would come if you spoke to each other.”
Speaking about the video for ‘Window Pane’, director Ash Cooke explains: “In this video we wanted to explore the mundane and repetitive loops of life. Almost like Groundhog Day in a British town. We wanted to show Alfie gradually breaking out of those loops and that gave us the chance to just have fun doing stupid stuff. I’ve wanted to throw oranges at Alfie for a long time, so this project was a dream come true for me.”
