Expansive alt-rock quintet LFM have unveiled their stylish new video – directed by Pink Floyd collaborator Benny Trickett – for ‘Somersaults’, a whip-smart melodic belter that forms half of the band’s double-A-sided single to be released on Ciao Ketchup Recordings on 9 March.
‘Somersaults’ also appears on the band’s new album ‘In The Room’, which will be released on Ciao Ketchup Recordings on 23 March.
‘Somersaults’ is a high-velocity outpouring of strident new wave, driven by a dirty jangle of plucked guitar atop buoyant ska-punk rhythms. Vocalist Conal is on fierce form, conducting the song – about how gangland badmen all inevitably fall on their sword – through its contagious, passionate hook (“Damn It All, But He Got This Rage”) and on to an explosive middle eight that finds the band leaving no note unscorched. The video, directed by Benny Trickett, who was the assistant director and editor on Pink Floyd’s recent ‘Louder Than Words’ promo, captures LFM in all their raw, rock’n’roll superstar glory.
