Orphan Boy have revealed a new music video for ‘Thirtysomething Lovesick Ballad’, the B-side to single ‘Money To Money’, released on October 9th via Concrete Recordings.
A tale of grim reality in the provinces, where dole-drum routine builds a simmering resentment and entire days are spent: “watching Zulu and just burning matches by the window”. Orphan Boy front-man Rob Cross reveals that this is one of the oldest songs to feature on their recent third album Coastal Tones. “We wrote it before Passion, Pain & Loyalty when we were all in our mid-twenties. It has been in the live set for years. The spoken word thing is something I like doing, inspired by heroes of mine: Kevin Rowland, Tom Waits and Jarvis Cocker”
