Manchester five piece Dutch Uncles return with new album O Shudder, set to be released on Memphis Industries on February 24, 2015.
Today they share the video for the album’s lead single “In n Out.” The video was inspired by the song’s subject matter of crossing the ‘friend zone.’ It explores the concept of In and Out, both literally and figuratively.
Lead singer, Duncan Wallis plays the role of the traveller from the future who is dreaming of a female spirit who eventually expels him from the comfort and thrill of the ‘Orbus’, leaving him alone, never to return.
The bands forthcoming album ‘O Shudder’ was recorded in Wales and Salford with long term collaborator Brendan Williams and features a cameo from Liverpool three piece Stealing Sheep. Without loosing any of their esoteric tendencies, ‘O Shudder’ is easily Dutch Uncles’ most accessible album yet, with the band finally having alchemised their idiosyncrasies into art-pop perfection. Lead singer Duncan Wallis describes the themes of the record as being “more personal and direct than before with reflections on pregnancy, terrorism, school discos, divorce, health scares, sexual dysfunction and job-seeking”.
