Video of the Moment #1503: The Crookes

By on Wednesday, 23rd April 2014 at 6:00 pm

Sheffield rockers The Crookes have just released a video for ‘Don’t Put Your Faith in Me’, which according to guitarist Tom Dakin’s comments in this interview with Mary, is set to be the next single from their new third album ‘Soapbox’ (reviewed by Mary back in February here).

The artsy black and white video is a montage of clips the band filmed during their recent trip to America and features their time in Austin for SXSW 2014. I must admit to smiling particularly at the faces and places I recognized from being at SXSW myself, including the chairs outside Latitude 30 where Mary and I did several artist interviews during the week. But the entire video shows the playful and mischievous side of the band, including the requisite sightseeing tours and “drinks in the hot tub” scenes. ‘Don’t Put Your Faith In Me’ isn’t exactly a good-humoured song, but with its upbeat music and catchy chorus, it does have a rakish quality that fits quite nicely with the mood of the video. Watch out for the release of this track and count it among potential pop anthems of summer 2014.

‘Soapbox’ is now available from Fierce Panda.
