Watch the Brighton four-piece blur into ethereal form in this new D.I.Y video as they glaze over your screen in a phased out boogie. Speaking of the lo-fi vibe, frontman Matt Marcantonio says "yeah, that's what the easiest and cheapest option looks like. We had no money and no time. Not every video nowadays needs a quasi-deep story line."
The Newcastle born quartet's general outlook is all long hair and effortlessness. Though their music may take in elements of great guitar sounds from the past - from 60s psychedelia and MC5-style chaos, through to 90s grunge and stoner-rock, Demob Happy don't care what year it is. The fast rising Brightonites hit the road in October for their first ever UK headline tour. Keep your ear to the ground for a new single before the year is out.
