Dublin electronic rockers The Cast Of Cheers unveil the video for their new single 'Human Elevator' in the wake of the release of their latest album 'Family' which hit shelves on July 23rd 2012 on Rough Trade records.
It's a bizarrely abstract video featuring a variety of different people from girls at a slumber party, kids at a costume party, a table tennis player in a mankini, a couple into bondage, an old man with a chainsaw and a body builder all appearing from behind the door of an elevator. It's as fun to watch as it is to listen to; a catchy, electronic chorus that's bound to stick in your head for days and a fun '90s feel to the vocal arrangement. It's impressive for a band so new on the scene to have such a personalised sound without losing any of the classic pop feel.
The Cast of Cheers (who are Conor, John, Kev and Neil) have already played at some of the UK's top festivals this year including Belfast's Belsonic festival and the Leeds and Reading Festivals, their Robot Rock sets certainly going down a storm. They are now set to tour with one of NME's favourites, Howler from Minneapolis, as well as Brighton band Gross Magic on the NME Generation Next Tour this October.
