Sweet Motel readers, please allow Dutch Uncles to cordially present the video for their wonderful new single 'The Ink'. Expect the following:
1. Lead singer Duncan in a bath;
2. Guitarist Sped 'on the throne' - and not Jay-Z or Kanye West style - reading a Jane Austen classic;
3. Rhythmic teeth brushing aplenty;
4. Spine-tingly good key changes throughout, each better than the last;
5. A state of affairs that's even creepier than the entire video for 'Face In', beginning sometime after the middle eight.
'The Ink' is out this week on Memphis Industries. Dutch Uncles play the following UK shows: Auntie Annie’s Porterhouse, Belfast (November 18), The Junction, Cambridge (25, supporting Wild Beasts), Concorde, Brighton (26, supporting Wild Beasts), Koko, London (30, with The Go! Team, Field Music and Colourmusic) and Trof Grosvenor Street (The Deaf Institute), Manchester (December 1).
