Tomorrow sees the release of London-based multi-instrumentalist Gary Lover‘s debut single ‘Diana Check The Weather’ and we’re delighted to bring you a first chance to see the video on Joyzine today.
The alter-ego of Tangerines singer Gareth Hoskins, Gary Lover plys us with an intoxicating mix of woozy innuendo and bare-bones post-rockabilly that puts us in mind of what might have happened had 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster ever got around to collaborating with Jon Spencer. The track is the first taste of Lover’s debut album Songs of Fortune, Songs of Pain which is due for release in the Autumn via Some Other Planet Records.
Speaking of the video, which he recorded in lockdown, Hoskins says ““I’m sure everyone’s been going a little crazy whilst having been confined to their houses so, for the Diana video, for me to be trying on wigs and dancing around in my bedroom it seemed like the right thing to be doing.” We could not agree more.
