Falmouth, UK garage rock/indie/lo-fi duo Holiday Ghosts have revealed the video for their latest single “B Truck“.
The song is part of our current playlist and came out in October via FatCat Records. Get it here.
Mining the works of eras past they forge from the best of artists such as The Kinks, Violent Femmes, Alex Chilton and Modern Lovers, using the sound as a backdrop onto which they deconstruct a myriad of social issues. The result is unadulterated and unclean, unabashed and uncompromised, with a lean and primitive rock n roll spirit.
‘B Track’ focusses on the sacrifices that people make for their employers and questions this as an accepted norm.
Sam Stacpoole ellaborates: “I wrote this song at a time when I was working through a recruitment agency for a variety of different jobs, mostly driving related. The lyrics are taken from conversations that I had with people who I worked alongside, and merged with my own frustrations of general full time work in minimum wage jobs. It’s also a larger commentary on the pressures people face in having to give up most of their life to work for businesses who don’t fairly value their time and rights, and the acceptance of this being a natural part of our society.”
