PREMIERE: The Town Heroes share new track and video ‘Poets’

Continuing their playful approach to music videos, The Town Heroes have shared their new track ‘Poets’ and the accompanying visuals.

While they may not take themselves too seriously – their comedy skits on Facebook amassing 10s of thousands of views – ‘Poets’ is no joke musically. The second release in the lead up to their forthcoming album Everything (will be fine when we get to where we think we’re going) ‘Poets’ is a hugely catchy, beat-driven dose of melancholy indie.

Speaking of the track (between being pelted with mustard, popcorn and god knows what else in the video shoot) Mike Ryan said: “This is what I think is the catchiest song on the album. Drum and bass driven and loaded with ear candy on top. The simplicity of the parts bring it to life. Musically, it’s got a danceable, fun vibe while the vocals are kind of sitting on top yearning for something when you focus in. Lyrically it’s about how to face something on your own, when things fall apart”
