We featured the mellifluous “Like You Less” by Jetstream Pony last week and we are now excited (!!) to premiere the video for the single’s flip-side – “Had Enough”. It’s another cracking tune, you know most ALBUMS don’t have two songs this good. Someone said B-side but we say it’s a Grade A double-A side and we award it an A+.
I got the vid (that’s slang for video) at midday yesterday and have been listening on a loop since (well ok, I did sleep for a few hours overnight but it was the soundtrack to my dreams). It’s a little bit mellower, scruffier around the edges. It’s heavy, it’s light, it got a wonderful understated chorus, melody and hesitant harmony. It’s lovely. Did I mention the cymbals*? The limited-edition vinyl single is out on small-but-beautifully-formed label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten since September 4th.
The video was filmed on Rottingdean beach, it’s between Brighton and Beachy Head, worth a visit I reckon.
Jetstream Pony are from Brighton/Croyden. They are people by Beth Arzy (Trembling Blue Stars/The Luxembourg Signal/Lightning in a Twilight Hour**/Aberdeen) on vocals, Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present/The Popguns/The Fireworks) on guitar, Kerry Boettcher on bass and Sara Boyle on drums.
6th October – London Dalston Victoria (with The Electric Pop Group)
