Video of the Moment #1997: City Reign

By on Monday, 25th January 2016 at 6:00 pm

Manchester’s City Reign are gearing up to release their ‘difficult second album’ in March. An early preview of ‘Dasein’, which follows their 2013 well-received debut ‘Another Step’, has already dropped in the form of teaser single ‘Sympathy’. Another single has now been announced and revealed: ‘Into the Night’, which the band themselves describe as them “return[ing] to these familiar themes of confusion and vulnerability which are fast becoming their hallmark” in a “soaring” new epic track.

Vulnerability, often paired with loneliness, is probably the best word to describe the promo video for ‘Into the Night’. Filmed by guitarist, songwriter and band co-founder Michael Grice, there is no main character in the video, unless you count the cold, hard entity that is the train car in which you’re riding in for the duration of the song. It is often said that in New York City, it’s much easier to feel lonely in a city filled with millions of people. I’m sure the same can be said of London where this promo was filmed on the Docklands Light Railway, but armed with the emotional vocals of Chris Bull and the feel good guitars of ‘Into the Night’ with you, you won’t feel so alone. Watch their new video for the single below.

‘Into the Night’, the upcoming new single from City Reign’, will be out on the 12th of February on the band’ own label Car Boot Records. Their second album ‘Dasein’ will follow on the 25th of March.
