Working Men’s Club have shared a new video for ‘Valleys’.
It’s a cut from the band’s self-titled debut album, due on 2nd October, which will be preceded by both a livestream show from the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds (21st August), and a 12” ‘MEGAMIX’ release for this year’s Record Store Day (29th August).
Syd from the band explains: “‘Valleys’ is probably the most honest song on the record and I guess sets a premise for the rest of the album, growing up in a small town and trying to escape.
“It was one of the last songs we finished, we couldn’t quite get the right string sound despite layering up about 4 synths up then Ross brought in his fixed LE string synth and it sounded perfect for the song.
“It’s the first track on the album and one of the last songs I wrote before going into Sheffield to finish off the record. Having been in lockdown since the end of Winter in Todmorden it seems like there couldn’t be a more appropriate time to release this song.”
Give the video – which was directed by Niall Trask, and shot in Calderdale – a watch below.
