Sheffield indie rock/alt artist lostboy (aka Max Clutterbuck) has released the video for his brand new single “The Wake Up“.
The politically-charged track highlights the current issues faced by our society in 2022. lostboy explains:
“I saw The Wake Up as my opportunity to address the struggles the working class are faced with on a daily basis. With the cost of living soaring and wages under paying, it’s hard watching those closest to me have to endure such difficult times – with nothing but a hard winter to look towards. It felt right to play my part in shedding light on the issues at hand, get us talking more and get us together. It’s time for those making the decisions to ‘wake up’ to what is a reality for so many. The more we talk the harder we can push for positive changes.”
Of the video he says:
“Sheffield’s got some mad spots where you can see across the the city, Bolehill is one of our favourites. It felt right to shoot the video there, and I like to think that I speak for a lot of the people who live in Sheff by addressing the working class struggle. It’s time for change and time that those in charge woke up to the mess they’ve made.”
