Video of the Moment #2263: Dutch Uncles

Before the new year, Manchester math rockers Dutch Uncles revealed ‘Big Balloon’, the lead single and title track to their upcoming newest studio album. ‘Big Balloon’ the LP will be their fifth and is scheduled for release on Memphis Industries on the 17th of February. At the start of December, our Adam reviewed the single, now A-listed on BBC 6 Music. You can read Adam’s review through this link.

The single now has a promo video, directed by Nick Middleton and filmed at Buxton Raceway. Getting to the place required a drive through some idyllic countryside, and I’m assuming the contrast between the rolling green hills of England and mangled metal cars was intentional. It’s like the beguiling study of contrasts that every Dutch Uncles song contains. Watch the video below. We’ve got a pretty big archive on the band on TGTF, which you can have a look through here.
