Leeds rockers Sky Larkin unveil a lyric video for their newest single 'Newsworthy', which is taken from their third album 'Motto' released last year through Wichita Recordings. The band are due to set out on their UK Spring Tour this April.
The black and white video, produced by Dan Tombs (who has previously worked with Gold Panda and Factory Floor), is made from Prelinger Archive footage of an old-fashioned printing factory, where workers are needed to work at a rapid pace to keep up with the newspaper copying. It's an upbeat rock track with a feisty attitude courtesy of singer Katie Harkin; the guitar riffs are simple, and yet the catchy chorus will have you singing along long after the song has ended.
'Please enjoy the read-along video for 'Newsworthy'', says Katie. 'It's a memento from the age of tactile text, augmented by the wonderful Dan Tombs, and now spat back out into the digital realm.' The band; who are Katie, guitarist Nile Marr, bassist Sam Pryor and drummer Nestor Matthews; will be touring the UK in April for a mini-tour, before joining their label mates Cloud Nothings at a new Leeds festival called Gold Sounds which will see them perform at the Brudenell Social Club on May 26th 2014.
