The Cribs bring something different and incredibly similar for the new video for ‘Summer of Chances’, the most recent song taken from For All My Sisters.
The something similar: a Cribs classic with ranging vocals over an indie/punk riff and punctuated with a lead line that would make a robot melt. They take their usual stance and managed to deliver a slice of Apple Cribble with extra cream.
The something different: the video for ‘Summer of Chances’ is set in a Japanese karaoke bar and as the amateur artists sway and sing-a-long to their favourite Yorkshire lads, the band remain tucked up inside a 70’s lit studio spreading all their indie joy.
With a gig at the infamous Roundhouse accompanied by The Wytches tonight expect to see the usually timid venue turned in to a mass of sprawling lager louts being sprayed with amber ambrosia and almost inaudibly screaming the lyrics to their favourite songs.
The crowd will probably have a belter as well.
