Hot Press Track of the Day: Robocobra Quartet's 'You'll Wade'

Belfast jazz/post-punk group have released the video for their first single from their second album Robocobra Quartet (Plays Hard To Get).

The music video from their new single sees frontman Chris Ryan "wading" through stock footage video on Pond5, before settling on a recycling clip of a waterfall.

Frontman Chris Ryan told The Thin Air recently, “During writing it was clear that ‘You’ll Wade’ was meant to have a massive ambience shift half way through the song. To get this we recorded both halves of the song separately with a different sounding drum kit and even a different bass & sax player from our family of collaborators, months apart. We also had a string quartet in doing some arrangements on this record and recorded them tuning up their instruments to drop in at a few places in this song. The sound of a string section tuning is beautiful and it seemed to work harmonically here!”

Robocobra Quartet (Plays Hard To Get) will be released on May 25. Find out more details here.
