“I had a true friend/she wasn’t pretend/there’s no start to this end”
X is the first new music from Working Men’s Club since their acclaimed self-titled debut was released in the autumn of 2020, the album was the band’s perfect statement of intent, X is the delivery, the message, the action. X rides on a sustained attack and gives way to a glorious synth heavy release of a chorus that’s just biding its time for a summer of discontent and dancing. This is the sound of your new favourite band hitting their stride. Count the days ’til you can see them in a field or in a club again. X was recorded, produced and mixed by Ross Orton, the video was directed by the bands visual team, Steve Hockett and IMPA TV. Talking about the video Steve said:
The video is a visual exploration of the line "there's no start to this end". Shot in a big ex-industrial fridge by IMPATV, we filmed Syds live performance with graphic projections using live analogue video feedback.
