Saturday Night Gym Club's latest single, I Know, features vocals from Ellie Walker and is taken from the band's long awaited debut EP, How To Build A Life Raft, which will be released on March 5th, 2012.
The video for I Know was directed by Paul Higham and uses sped up stock footage of European motorways; a mountain range and people going about their daily business.
Alan Sanderson (vocals, beats / sampler), Conor O'Kane (vocals, keys, guitar), Nick Crowe (vocals / bass) and Tom Bounford (violin / synths) make up Saturday Night Gym Club. The four met at university on the same science course. Despite their reservations regarding each other's musical tastes, they bonded over a love of sound, prompting them to start the group. As well as composing their tracks, the boys also self-produce it all and frequently send excerpts of sound to each other via email.
Recently, Saturday Night Gym Club played Small Trees Festival; BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend and Livefest at the London O2. 2012 looks set to be just as busy, with a string of summer festival appearances; DJ sets in the UK, Ireland and Europe, not to mention the release of their debut album at the end of 2012.
