This dramatic, New York City six-piece are about to release English Dream, the band’s sixth studio album, on April 15 via Old Soul Records. After having solidified a kind of rootsy, expansive, pop sound, Spottiswoode And His Enemies get a little darker and cinematic on the new album. We’ve got the premiere of the new video for the first single, No Time For Love, a lovely, piano-led ballad that builds in intensity as the song goes along.
There is a video for each track on English Dream, and these videos, spanning the 20th century, feature the artists in period clothes performing in front of archive British Council film footage from different decades of the 20th century. This video—the first in a series of 14 videos that were all filmed in 10 hours over one day—features clips from a 1970s British short about commuter trains called Rush Hour, mirroring the sentiments of the song. Stop and smell the locomotive grease sometimes, folks.
