Manchester’s The Maple State have revealed the video for new single Something In The Water!
Frontman Greg Counsell explains; “Growing up in Manchester we were always in the shadow of the Peak District – as soon as anyone learned to drive the first thing we did was race along the Snake Pass to Sheffield. To this day, whenever we’re all back in Manchester we’ll take a day and head up into the peaks.
“When we were discussing videos ideas for ‘Something in the Water’, we just wanted to capture a little bit of the wilderness madness that inspired the song in the first place. Unfortunately the Amazon rain forest wasn’t on our door step, so we figured the next best thing was up Snake Pass. This road has featured in a couple of The Maple State lyrics over the years so it was a nice way to bring it back around.”
“The narrative got lost somewhere along the way, but it’s probably better like this, a far more truthful representation of the reality of our band – joyous, drunken nonsense. At one point we got bored of listening to our own song on repeat and someone started playing Mike and the Mechanics…I’m sure there was a ‘hilarious’ reason for this at the time. All in all it was just a good day.”
