We've been championing Sydney's The Preachers for a long time now. Their bluesy, country rock n roll sound won us over the first time we heard it and, since then, the five-piece have continued to evolve and to push themselves creatively. Their 66 Project last year was an interesting one and now, joyously, we are seeing the fruits of their labour, with new single, Take a Card, hitting the airwaves. You can check it out above. The song is the lead-track from their second EP, Shaking Hands, which is due for release in April.
Directed and edited by Simon Day (Ratcat) and Rob Saponja, the clip for Take a Card was shot at their studio in Sydney's infamous heritage-listed old building Hibernian House (where Bobbysix.com used to have its headquarters) in a little under two hours in early February. When asked about the vibe of the clip, vocalist/keyboardist Isabella Manfredi said: "We wanted something that captured the band naturally; a classic performance video with no shots of us running through fields."
Keen to find out more about the new single and EP, Bobbysix's Heidi Pett recently sat down for a chat with Isabella and vocalist/guitarist Gideon Benson in the very same room in which they shot their clip. As ever, they proved themselves to be charming, as well as very passionate and driven when it comes to their music. Have a look and a listen for yourself in our little video-clip below:
