Labelling themselves as ‘London’s greatest alcoholic garage rock band’, four piece folk-rock band Albino are releasing their latest album, Night At The Chemist, from which their new retro-infused single, ‘Belinda’, is taken.
The music video’s stark lego formation juxtaposes brilliantly with the vintage rock sound; a refreshing mix of modern visuals with a sound of a different age. It’s the kind of musical recipe that would make Johnny Cash proud, and would equally strike a note with fans of Tom Waits, The Animals, The Doors as well as children of the 60s ‘flower-power’ generation.
Consisting of Ben Tucker (guitar/vocals), Merv Salole (Bass), Gareth Morris (guitar) and Don Gibson (percussion), Albino’s sole aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, merry spirit. As the main songwriter in the outfit, Ben is the driving inspirational force, tapping into a deep well of life experiences that draw on topics as diverse as love, deviancy, and of course, drinking.
Since their inception in 2005, Albino has undergone a musical metamorphosis, travelling a long way from their humble beginnings, but now, the off-the-wall band has cemented their style and truly found their own sound. Whilst Albino’s eclectic and multi-talented musical line up has changed over the years, their musical direction, commitment and energy has always remained constant.
As the band have stated: ‘We may not change the world with our music, but we’ll definitely leave a scar.’
