Folk quintet Keston Cobblers Club unveil a video for the Won't Look Back from their forthcoming new album 'Wildfire', which is set for release on June 15th 2015 through Tricolour Records and Absolute via Universal.
The video features a bearded man consulting a map, a pocket watch and a postcard before leaving his house and setting off on a countryside walk, occasionally stopping to rest and re-examine the watch and card. He eventually reaches a boat, which he takes up river and from their watches the smoke trail of several meteors shooting down from the sky. It's an ominous visual, amplified by the melancholy undercurrents of the tune, which itself is led by a classic, fast-paced string melody and perfectly harmonised vocals.
The new album follows their 2012 debut 'One, For Words' and was written by siblings Matthew and Julia Lowe, who recorded it in the countryside alongside co-producers Joe Dickinson, Ben Jackson and Austen Jux-Chandler. 'We wouldn't call it a huge change in direction', insists Julia. 'More an evolution. There's a signature Cobbler's recipe that we'll always follow. That's strong vocal harmonies, powerful drums, and hooky melodies and these are all still here. But the instrumentation has grown, that's the biggest difference.' The band will also be organising their Camp Wildfire festival this year and will later embark on a UK tour come October 2015.
