Without trying to be stalkers of Will Joseph Cook, we are becoming slightly obsessed with the Tunbridge Wells singer-songwriter, as so its rather a treat for us here at Backseat Mafia to premiere (a slightly posh word for doing nothing more than previewing it, before it goes live on his own media, but you know, we’ll take it) a video for his song July.
As seems to be the way with Cook, he manages to write these slightly downcast, but desperately likeable melodies, his voice al out cracking over the gently lilting backing. Theres warmth in there too though, and enough lit at the end of the tunnel (it is, after all, July) to end off feeling positive, even hopeful.
The accompanying video was film in Will’s garage in Tunbridge Wells, surrounded by artefacts from a bygone age, by his friend and talented young film maker Lou Randell. Its dreamy and beautiful and DIY at its most beautiful,
