Video of the Moment #1051: The View

By on Monday, 26th November 2012 at 6:00 pm

Scottish rock band The View have a new video for ‘Hold On Now’, which will appear on a digital bundle / Christmas double A-side to be released on the 2nd of December. The bundle release will also feature ‘Tacky Tattoo’ and a cover of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Addicted’ as the B-side.

I the promo, they play on the classically quintessential likely lads video. There’s football, some on stage rock and roll shenanigans and the entire video is shot in a kind Instagram pastiche. Not really for me, but the song more than makes up for the abundance of indie rocker clichés. Watch the video for ‘Hold On Now’ below.

The View have a video out, and it’s for their new single ‘The Clock’, from their top 10 album ‘Cheeky for a Reason’. It’s a lot simpler – and less salacious – than their last one for ‘How Long’. Watch it below.
