Indie pop group The Lottery Winners have shared the music video for their latest release Times Are Changing. Moving forward with a hugely optimistic sound this track oozes positivity that’ll have you longing for summer months. The music video is beautifully nostalgic and it’s so hard not to smile while watching. Featuring aesthetically retro footage of old times, it makes you feel like things really will get better again; reminding you of all the things to smile about.
This huge bop draws a line under pandemic talk for the unstoppable four piece. With the drop of this anthem The Lottery Winners are launching into a bright world. Times Are Changing is also the first single from the band’s recently announced Something To Leave The House For. This second studio album has penned the soundtrack to hugging old friends, the rebirth of live music and summer festivals that are so close.
Frontman Thom Rylance worked through surviving Covid and tying the threads of an unravelling mental state into a new body of work. Coming out the other side, this new offering is packed full of brightness and positivity. From a viral collaboration with Nickelback on Rock Star Sea Shanty to Rylance’s famed Note To Self from the emotive “An Open Letter To Creatives” it’s clear the band are shifting the dark clouds.
“If something so bleak and harrowing can hit us all, totally out of the blue, and change out lives, then by definition that must mean that something beautiful can too,” says bassist and vocalist, Katie Lloyd.
Something To Leave The House For features a mammoth 14 tracks and follows on from 2020’s self titled debut and will be released Friday 24th September 2021 via Modern Sky UK. Promising to document the tumultuous times and path back from despair, in their iconic style, every truth and life lesson is presented in a wildly optimistic and radio friendly pop way.
Following a theme of looking ahead and celebrating brighter days, the group have announced new and rescheduled 2021 UK Tour dates, including a huge night at Manchester’s 02 Ritz, as well as festivals and supporting Kaiser Chiefs at Cardiff Castle.
