Taken from their forthcoming Home Truths EP, South London duo Alibis have released a video for their track Only Time. A melancholy tale of a past childhood sweetheart, the pair – 22 year olds Richie Skint and Harvey Lee, feature in the video which was filmed in the bedroom where they wrote it. The pair hit it off musically despite being two distinct personalities – Skint a roofer with a penchant for Otis Redding and Lee worked in the insurance game, and cites The Clash and Richard Hawley as his influences.
Only Time is a rather beautiful song, the strummed guitar chords giving it this shimmering effect (the Hawley), as it wistfully wends its soulful (the Otis) way through. It’s all topped off with this lovely, warm vocal with the second guitar parts chopping softly through. Keep an eye on Alibis.
