The latest track to be taken from Uncle Luc’s sophomore album Sticking to the Rules is the brilliant ‘Bones of the Days’ and Far Out are proud to premiere the brand new nostalgia-drenched video for you all to enjoy.
Featuring the pedal steel talents of BJ Cole who is perhaps best known for playing on Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’, the track has a sense of charm and a firm eye on the rose-tinted rear-view mirror as Luc casually riffs off the 90’s nostalgia.
Using the video to poke fun at the references, which range from the always-in-the-air-at-the-party fragrance CK One to the cult show Dawson’s Creek, Luc takes aim at himself and the past he is so lovingly looking back at. Shot on one sunny afternoon in his hometown of Dorking in Surrey, the video cost just £14.49 to make and features his parents’ dog ‘Stanley’ – who is widely tipped for Oscar noms.
The song itself is a sweetly lilting and entirely smile-inducing piece of folk-pop prowess. Offering Nashville nods and the odd psychedelic refrain Uncle Luc is proving to be one of the most honest, self-effacing guys in the business.
That would be all well and good except his song-writing is so on point you feel almost silly for agreeing with him as he ruthlessly laughs at himself.
