Back in September, Melbourne’s Scott & Charlene’s Wedding released their third album, Mid Thirties Single Scene and today share ‘Distracted’ complete with video. The track captures simultaneously the need for escapism and the angst and stultification that living an uninspiring existence in an unforgiving world can bring. The album is a grower with its on the surface simplicity quickly giving way to reveal nine self-effacing gems full of everyday moments and everyday life, good and the bad, the remarkable, the frustrating, the mundane. It will be our much belated Album Of The Week from tomorrow. Watch below and if you live in Australia or New Zealand, grab your vinyl copy of the record through Bedroom Suck here and if you live elsewhere on Fire Records here. Later this month the band embark on an at this stage 13-leg European tour bookended in the working class cities of northern England.
It begins in Preston on the 20th and wraps up in Sheffield on November 13. All tour dates below the clip.
