Video of the Day: Trust Fund – Football

Football is firmly embedded as a massive part of our culture in the UK, but rarely has the beautiful game been equated with equally beautiful music (don’t give me ‘World In Motion’ or ‘Three Lions’, neither would stand up on their own merits without the nostalgia factor).  Out to improve the goal difference are Bristol indie pop collective Trust Fund, who previously caught our attention via an excellent split EP with Joanna Gruesome.  Their plan – write a song that isn’t really about football, but more its place in our collective consciousness and our use of the game as a way of building relationships and plugging conversational vacuums.  And to make things even better they’ve accompanied it with a fun video featuring an eye-scorching array of vintage kits – lovers of synthetic fabrics will be in heaven. /
