The Clientele haven’t released a new album for the better part of a decade, but back in June they rectified that with news of an LP called Music For The Age Of Miracles and an advance listen to “Lunar Days.” Today the English twilight balladeers are back with a second foretaste of the album, a typically elegant chamber-pop sigh called “Everyone You Meet.” It arrives with a music video by director Paul Kelly shot on Super 8 in the Northern London suburbs, which Clientele frontman Alasdair MacLean describes as the “forgotten parts” of the city:
We knew Paul had filmed the Lea Valley in [Saint Etienne’s short film] What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? and that he was interested in forgotten parts of London. We asked him to make the North Circular ring road and the buildings and streets around our way — New Southgate, N11 — look beautiful. Which, amazingly, he did. He captured the North Circular vernacular and hung out with us in some of our favourite places, beginning with a couple of epic walks along the A406 ring road in the pouring rain.
