Hailing from Leeds, alternative rock band I Like Trains uncover their official video for their single 'Mnemosyne' to be released on July 2nd through ILR (I Like Records); the first single taken from their third studio album 'The Shallows' which was released in April this year (2012).
The video is part of a trilogy of videos designed to capture the effect of technology on people's lives in the 21st century. This video features a bespectacled young boy from the 80s discovering the technology of the decade. David Martin's vocals really emphasise the haunting effect of the lyrics and the poetic interpretation of how technology has impacted on people's lives is highly thought provoking.
I Like Trains, who are David (vox/guitar), Alistair Bowes (bass/keyboard), Simon Fogul (drums) and Guy Bannister (guitar/vox), have received immense support from a handful of popular publications. They were described by NME as being 'brilliant, unique, wry' and 'at odds with pop's present trends'. The Guardian branded them 'intelligent, very dark humorists'.
The band are currently offering a 20% reduction off everything on their online shop as an expression of gratitude from David after receiving immense support while he was recovering from chicken pox.
