Director, Joe Connor: "Throughout this whole collaboration, The Maccabees main point was to make the mundane seem amazing, the grotesque beautiful and the forgotten prominent. It's a theme that permeates their whole album and in this video I was desperate to focus on the beauty that can be found in a much derided area. Everything you see in these images is really there, nothing is added, it...

The Maccabees guitarist, Felix White, recently sat down with BrumNotes to talk their long-awaited fourth album (end of July, you'll all be pleased to know on my behalf), the long path that lead to it and their support slot with Mumford and Sons in North America.
"We actually took Mumford & Sons on their first ever tour, it was just before their first record Sigh No More blew up,” says Felix. “It was on the tour for our second, Wall of Arms, in 2009. Now look at them. You cannot believe how big they are in America. They’re playing in front of 20,000 people a night – they’re pretty well off the radar. But those shows, as a support, they are the least nerve-wracking. You’re so far away...

From The InterviewI think we're gonna do it ourselves, The way we made the last record, learning to do it ourselves, no-one knows better how to make our own record than we do. It's gonna have quite a lot of space in it. With the records we're listening to at the moment, there's so much faith in the songs that they're allowed to really breathe and exist on their own grooves.
