Having just completed their biggest headline tour to date, culminating in a triumphant show at London’s KOKO, Spring King release the video to new single ‘City’. One of the most loved songs taken from their debut album Tell Me If You Like To, the video release follows a monumental 2016 for the Manchester garage-pop band.
The new ‘City’ clip, directed by Jack Whiteley, follows on directly from where their ‘Detroit’ video left off. In the first video, the band play different characters on a TV dating show called Euro Lover. In the ‘City’ video, the successful contestants Bartek (played by singer/drummer Tarek Masa) and Penelopete (played by guitarist Pete Darlington) go on a romantic yet doomed trip to Detroit… played by Margate.
In 2015, ‘City’ gained huge exposure as the very first track to be played by Zane Lowe on Apple’s global radio station Beats 1. Spring King have since gone on to release an acclaimed debut album, enjoyed a slew of BBC Radio 1 playlisted singles, perform on Later… With Jools Holland, tour across UK, Europe and Australia, as well as receiving a nomination for Best Breakout Band at this years Q Awards and winning ‘Live Act of the Year’ at the AIF Festival Congress Awards.
Spring King are currently on their first US tour. While in the States, the band joined Zane Lowe in the Beats 1 studio for a live interview. Spring King’s singer/drummer Tarek Musa says: “It was really exciting to meet up with Zane Lowe on our first tour of the US and talk music. It feels like everything has come full circle with ‘City’ coming out again as part of our album too.”
