Leeds trio Club Smith have unveiled an energetic but bizarre video for their new single 'The Green Room' due out on September 2nd 2013 through Tri-Tone/ PIASUK records. The track appeared on their debut album 'Appetite for Chivalry' released in 2012.
The video features a bunch of guys wearing hoods, ponchos and spray painted animal masks as they frolic about smashing up their guitars, skateboarding, cycling and starting bonfires, occasionally alongside a bored looking Siberian Husky. It's the perfect testament to youth and frivolity which is frequently hinted at in the catchy lyrics among the underlying confusion and desolation. The song has a driving drum beat with a rhythmic, crescendo like force behind it and an almost melancholy sentiment that makes it a brilliant track to round off the summer.
After releasing their debut album in 2012, Club Smith have far from drawn a line beneath it. They continue to reproduce the record with new mixes using a variety of producers - including Dave Bascombe (Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Tears For Fears) and Lance Thomas (Ladytron, Clinic) for the single mix - to keep their musical identity as ambiguous as ever. The track follows previous singles 'Beautiful & Useless', 'Lament' and 'No friend of Mine'.
