Out on November 19th is the debut – Live at the Rum Puncheon, from indie pop supergroup Swansea Sound, aka Hue Williams alongside Pooh Sticks singing partner Amelia Fletcher (ex-Talulah Gosh, Heavenly). Rob Pursey (also ex-Heavenly) and Ian Button (ex-Death In Vegas) make up the rest of the quartet. Both the band and its equal parts are dear to us here at Backseat Mafia, so we’re delighted to share their new video, for the track Rock N Roll Void.
Despite sounding like a Jesus and Mary / BRMC title, it’s actually irresistable jangle-pop, albeit at the scruffier end of things as Hue ask those important questions ‘Who am I? ‘Where do I come from?’ and ‘Where’s the volume control?’ Before explaining….Cos I need to play this song REALLY LOUD!’ With just the right amount of joyous jump around mixed up with a hint of melancholy, Rock and Roll Void is just the thing to make your day better.
