Video of the Day: The Midnight Barbers – Damascus

Essex duo The Midnight Barbers’ new single ‘Damascus’ is a rollicking slice of rock & roll evangelism, propelled on a crunchy guitar riff with Ben Rowntree’s fervent, gravelly vocals rising and falling over drummer Jack Pepper’s tight rhythms.

Fittingly then the atmospheric black and white video accompanying the track casts Rowntree as a firebrand preacher, snarling and gesticulating to whip his congregation into a frenzy, with Pepper his altogether cooler and more distant assistant.

It’s a perfect taster for the debut album which the band are recording for release later this year.

‘Damascus’ is released on 7th September through Sweet Release Records.
