Brighton quartet Glass City Vice launch a light-hearted, fun video for their latest single 'Landslide', which they are set to release on March 9th 2015. The single comes alongside their Feb - May 2015 UK tour.
The video is mostly black and white until the end part, and is a montage of clips mainly featuring the band's frontman being tormented by the rest of the band, who don him with sunglasses, clingfilm and a hat, while intermittently trying to feed him and momentarily attacking him with what looks like a vacuum cleaner and later three water pistols. There's also the odd clip of an adorable French bulldog thrown in there. Just because. Matching this cheerful atmosphere are lively, resounding vocals against very catchy, upbeat guitar which work together to create a bit of a sing-a-long moment. Though despite the hijinks, there's a melancholy undercurrent made comprehensible by the rhythmic percussion and black and white tone.
Glass City Vice; who are Josh, Ed, Dudley and Lawrie; have been working on this new release with producer Max Hayes (who has previously worked with the likes of Paul Weller and Primal Scream). And they're supporting this, and B-side '72nd Street', with a UK tour which has earlier this year seen them perform alongside You Me At Six and More Than Conquerors. Their single launch will take place at London's Elektrowerkz.
