Sometimes, just sometimes, it's good to put all the bad stuff to the back of your mind andfind something good…find something that makes you smile.
That's the outlook 40 Shillings on the Drum
took to make their simple, but effective new music video
for their original song, The English Coast
. They wanted to put something out there that just makes people smile.
The video was entirely the band's idea
and made with the help of volunteers and no budget, but thousands of Facebook viewers
think the outcome is heartwarming.
The video was filmed by the band on a bright and sunny day in Newhaven, East Sussex,in July 2017.
If you've been living under a rock, you may not have realised that the video is currently picking up a lot of attention on Facebook - twenty-five thousand views and counting!
It's all down to the incredible support the band has been receiving from people who are watching and loving the video.
The Brighton-based folk-rock band are about to release their debut EP, Beggars Who Believe; layering sweet guitar licks and fiddle kicks on top of complex keys; bringing a fresh sound to a traditional style.
The E.P. features Beggars on the Street, the gypsy-punk inspired, lead track from the collection about standing strong against vitriol and rejection.
Local favourite, Brighton Belle,
which has the potential to be adopted as an anthem for the city,
can also be found as part of the six tracks which make up the EP.
The extended play could be looked upon as a mini-album and is a grand example of a band that are not only consistent, but also willing to give people quality and quantity.
With support from Bobby Banjo
(Beans on Toast) and some positive feedback fromPaul Weller
, along with an international, growing fanbase, the celtic-rock influenced 40 Shillings On The Drum
look destined and ready to take things to the next level.
'Beggars Who Believe' will be released worldwide to stream, and as a digital download, on Friday 25th August 2017 and available through – iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, eMusic, Deezer, Spotify and more. For more info CLICK HERE.
