Belfast brother and sister duo Southern have released a simplistic video for their new single ‘Cool Kid‘.
Directed by Michael Holyk, the grainy black and white clip is lightly shrouded in a TV static-esque filter, giving the video a nostalgic tinge. The twenty-something, Liverpool-based siblings (Thom and Lucy Southern) play acoustic in a studio against a giant projector of themselves.
The track – in the same vein as recent tour buddies Jake Bugg and The Kooks – is a breezy, rock number suited to a road trip mixtape or teen birthday party with its gentle strumming and Scouse-lilted vocals.
The band’s yet-to-be-titled debut album is being produced by Mark Rankin (Queens of the Stone Age) and is set for release in 2015 via Marathon Artisits.
