Family band Perch Creek have given their new single ‘Gold Shop’ the video treatment.
The quirky, vintage track channels old school soul and blues stylings with a groove that beckons you to the dancefloor immediately.
It’s been delivered alongside an equally quirky video with a crime-laden storyline that you’re probably going to have to read about to fully understand.
Bassist James Chandler explained it saying, “It’s about [lead singer] Eileen’s moustachioed male alter ego bemoaning the woes caused by his own alter ego (a shady female) who is committing crimes and getting him/her into big trouble.”
“It was inspired by the multitude of gold ‘souks’ in the world’s capital of bling, Dubai, where we spent a week performing at a shopping festival. It wasn’t exactly Golden Plains but we managed to have a great time nevertheless.”
Intrigue aside, it’s heaps of fun and a personable accompaniment to the song which introduces the forthcoming album nicely.
The album, due for release on 13th April, was produced by J. Walker who has worked with Paul Kelly and Jen Cloher. It was the result of sessions where the band, “jammed and let the music come naturally,” as Chandler explained.
