Video of the Moment #1899: Reverend and the Makers

By on Wednesday, 26th August 2015 at 6:00 pm

I’m still reeling somewhat to Reverend and the Makers‘ latest revelation that underneath their dance, bass thumping exterior was hidden a bluesy, growly, Richard Hawley-esque group just itching to come out. (If you missed it, have a listen and watch to the video of ‘Black Widow’, posted 3 weeks ago here on TGTF.) Okay, so are you ready for another slap of reality from the Sheffielders?

‘Makin’ Babies’ clocks in at just under 2 minutes, and as exactly as the title sounds, this could have been plucked from the psychedelic ’60s and ’70s, and the lo-fi sound shuffles along nicely. I don’t think it’s supposed to be epousing free love as they did back then, but instead is about how time is marching on and how all of our biological clocks are ticking. Even the Rev’s. Just a personal musing. Watch the video below.

Reverend and the Makers’ next album ‘Mirrors’ is out on the 9th of October; they will be touring in support of the new LP in November and December. For all of TGTF’s coverage on the band (admittedly before they shifted in direction), go here.
