We have the pleasure in premiering the new video from Stick in the Wheel for ‘Champion‘, their new single taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘From Here‘.
There is a stripped back rawness to Stick in the Wheel which whilst going against the grain of many other acts performing traditional folk music has a stronger link than most to that of both the past and the present. Talking about their music lead singer Nicola Kearey comments:
“We see this music as part of our culture, we’re not pretending to be chimney sweeps or 17th century dandies. A lot of people are really disconnected from their past, and this is part of what we’re addressing – getting people to reconnect with it, and realise there are parallels to be drawn from life 100 or 200 years ago. We make this music because we have to.”
The Champion single is out now and their debut album follows this month on 25th September via From Here Records. We’ll be brining you more on their debut album soon.
