As the sun tentatively pops its head out of the clouds and ushers in spring, London based quartet Dear Leaders emerge with the delightfully compelling ‘Myth (Not A Football Song)’ to ease us in gently.
It’s delectable jangly guitar sound and dream-like quality is matched effortlessly in their captivating new video, streaming exclusively on Birthday Cake For Breakfast below.
Directed by Royal Institution Filmmaker Ed Prosser, the video was filmed last summer back home in North London. In the video, we share the same uncertainty of the protagonist; seeing this apparent new world through bleary vision. The rinse/repeat nature of the video is much the same as the song itself, and you’ll be sure to want to hit the replay button just as soon as it’s finished.
Late 2015 saw Dear Leaders on their first European tour, with one pissed up punter claiming them to be the next Jefferson Airplane! With plaudits like that, you’d be well advised to get yourself out of the house and to a Dear Leaders show in the next week. Saturday April 30th sees them at Tiger Lounge in Manchester and Thursday May 5th will see them back home in London, with a show at The Black Heart in Camden.
