Manchester Indie-Rockers DarkTown Jubilee are gearing up to release their brand new single, Stay. Taken from the forthcoming album The World, The Flesh & The Devil (Feb 4th 2013), it’s set for release on January 28th via Parade Recordings.
The 5 piece, completed by David Boardman (vocals and guitar), Stuart Day (bass), John Cosgrove (drums), Al Roberts (lead guitar) and Gary O’Brien (keyboards), release Stay as the follow up to 2012’s Breakdown
Vocalist and Guitarist David Boardman comments on the video;
“Stay was always in the forefront of our minds when it came to single choices and has always been a crowd favorite at gigs. It’s a huge, anthemic song, which is counterbalanced by a melancholic lyric which is basically a meditation on loss, whether that be the end of a relationship or something darker.
For the video, however, we were keen to show another, more playful, humorous side to the band whilst still remaining true to the essence of the song. The initial idea was to have the lead character enter a surreal, dreamlike scenario in which a procession of weird and wonderful characters were singing the song in karaoke style. Finding the venue (a karaoke bar in Manchester’s ChinaTown) was key to the look of the finished film and once Emma Atkins agreed to play the lead role, it all began to take shape. It was a cool video to make which included nods to some favorite films and formative influences!
