THE LEISURE SOCIETY - SINGLE REVIEW

The Leisure Society - Tearing The Arches Down (Full Time Hobby Records) 
The Leisure Society - Tearing The Arches Down

Release Date: 25th November 2013

Just to get this out of the way first off, the video for this song is yet to be made and if you want to make it then you can enter the competition to make it with the winner being picked by fancy actor/director type fella, Paddy Considine . To make a good video though, you're going to need to know what the song sounds like in case you don't have any speakers, access to the internet or ears. 'Tearing The Arches Down' is a dreamy yet eccentric slice of English indie pop, the kind this isle has been producing for a few decades like it was spitting out cherry stones. Think Young Knives, Pulp, the Kinks, My Life Story, the Devine Comedy (in on a technicality, like Terry Wogan) and LWM favourites the Little Philistines. If I was to be so bold as to recommend a starting point for a video, I would suggest something story based featuring the Leisure Society in some typically English settings such as a greasy spoon, the back of a sweaty bus, a grey train platform, a dated village pub and a park bench. But I'm blogger not a video makerer type person so what do I know?
