Pale Kids share video for The Binder’s Chills – LTW exclusive
Durham’s Pale Kids are about to release their EP Holy Mess via Frux Tapes and Drunken Sailor and today they’re sharing the video for The Binder’s Chills exclusively with LTW.
With a gloriously upbeat melody this is a catchy slice of garage pop. The band say of the track, “The song is about a fictional illness called The Binder’s Chills from a book series called The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss.
“The lyrics deal with the idea of skipping school to read fantasy books as a method for dealing with anxiety.”
Formed early in 2016 the Durham four-piece have a no-nonsense attitude and a sound reminiscent of late ’70s punk and exuberant but seriously-minded garage pop. They describe themselves as singing “about anxiety, alcohol-dependency and being queer”.
