New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive video premiere of “Chancers & Rats” by Mortimer Jackson. The tune has a vibrant music video, really lending a hand to bringing the artistic vision of it alive. The track uses fiery guitars to create a place for hooks to thrive and really dig in to their trance. Take a listen below and stay tuned for more from this vivacious musician!
“‘Chancers & Rats’ is a guitar driven indie-rock track and is about two people from different walks of life who are trying hard to do different things, they’re a bit down on their luck but they catch each others eye and end up working together to fight against the same cause, they align their forces and start to win against the system. The idea for the video is loosely based around a budget version of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Sledgehammer’, and is a visualisation of the striking rhythm of the song.”
Having already toured with The Hold Steady, received airplay on BBC Radio 1 and played out on Soccer AM, singer-songwriter Mortimer Jackson returns with indie rock single ‘Chancers & Rats’, dropping June 22nd. After being a finalist at a BASCA supported songwriting competition, Mortimer Jackson returns with infectious vocals and melodies.
Taking influence from the classics such as Blur, Oasis and Joy Divison, yet keeping it modern with sounds similar to Miles Kane, DMA’S and The Vaccines, Jackson’s sound appeals to the masses. Showcasing his distinctive vocals, ‘Chancers & Rats’ follows two people from completely different walks of life who come together to beat the system.
Produced and recorded at Audiobeach Studios in Brighton, mixed at Buffalo Studios in London and mastered by Grammy award winning Robert Harder in California, ‘Chancers & Rats’ is released June 22nd.
