There’s something about this vid that kinda takes you unawares. It’s not serious music – the band are serious, but the song sounds silly and fun. And yet the clip is more than just silly and fun. Sweets are in on the secret. Straight up in Annabelle Tunley’s face is this self-awareness, this realisation at the awkwardness of the dancing etc. But still absolutely OWNING that awkwardness.
‘Swagger’ is the first taste from Sweets, which is essentially Annabelle’s project (with the help of George Weis and Peter Emptage). You might recognise Annabelle – she is also part of that ace vocal trio Aluka, who released an excellent album earlier on this year.
If you’re keen also, then Sweets are launching the single at The Workers Club on Sunday night with support coming from Martin King and Hollie Joyce. Details here.
