Charles Watson / May and June 2018 UK Tour

 
By on Monday, 12th February 2018 at 9:00 am
 

Newly established as a solo artist, Charles Watson (also known here at TGTF as part of indie pop duo Slow Club) has announced a list of UK headline shows to follow the upcoming release of his debut LP ‘Now That I’m a River’. The album is due out on the 18th of May via Moshi Moshi. Watson’s headline tour will begin the following evening at Ramsgate Music Hall and extend through the first part of June.

Along with the tour announcement, Watson has also unveiled a new promo video for the surprisingly groovy album track ‘Abandoned Buick’.  Directed by Jacob Wyatt and Alistair Baines and produced by RND Media, the promo is simple in design and has the same lo-fi vibe as the song itself. Watson, for his part, is equally low-key in his commentary. “Although the new video for ‘Abandoned Buick’ may at first appear to be just some clever camera work, a clapped-out Mercedes and deceptive shots of my manager wearing exactly the same jacket as me,” he quips, “it is, in fact, evidence that I have successfully achieved my life long goal of having a touring clone”.

You can watch the video for ‘Abandoned Buick’ just below the tour date listing. Tickets for the following shows are available now. And ICYMI, our review of ‘No Fanfare’, the first single from ‘Now That I’m a River’, is right back this way.
