Manchester band The Slow Readers Club, continue to tease their return with a new video for ‘You Opened Up My Heart’.
The Slow Readers Club have released a video to the third track taken from their forthcoming album, Build A Tower. ‘You Opened Up My Heart’ is aesthetically pleasing to watch, while the band’s fusion of indie and electro make for intense listening.
Opening with a piercing hook, followed by a rolling and intense beat, ‘You Opened Up My Heart’ catches your attention in seconds. The brooding trademark sound reminds us what we’ve been missing over the last three years since their last record Cavalade.
Frontman, Aaron Starkie’s booming voice sings about being taken over by love and finding hope, you can’t help but be sucked in by his powerful voice. Along with a catchy chorus, this is going to be a stand out moment when they tour across the UK later this month.
While performing the song, the band are surrounded by lasers and projections, adding further depth to the uplifting but simultaenously dark track. Speaking about the video, Starkie said: “It was great working with Chris (director) from Croftwork on this video, as he’s been with us from the start and together we’ve grown to the point where we’re making, hopefully, powerful images that compliment the music. We had a good day making the video, and being inside the cube with the projections in person was amazing, so we hope that translates to the viewer too.”
