Sheffield trio The Retrospectives have now unleashed a new video for their latest single 'Insane'. It's their third single of the year, but there's no word yet on what to expect from their forthcoming album.
The video flicks back and forth from a speeded-up driver's view of a busy road to the band performing their new track. The song, which was released in August 2014, begins with an almost country style twang at the hands of the breathy vocals and gentle guitar, before a dreamy synth echo kicks in turning it into a melancholy affair. There's a sing-a-long chorus and an edgy guitar solo to be had as things progress, making this track truly one of their most listenable yet.
The band; who are vocalist and guitarist Tom Galton, bassist Will Stocks and drummer Paul Jackson; united as a three-piece in 2013 and this year have produced three singles this year including 'Bittersweet' and 'Gold & Green'. Preceding this, however, was their debut EP 'Turn Me Up' led by single '52 Records', which they soon followed with a UK tour supporting the likes of The Boomtown Rats, Night Engine, Paper Aeroplanes and The Buzzcocks. We spoke to the band recently who revealed their future plans. 'At some point we're looking to do another longer release, an EP, and eventually an album', they said.
