Hotel Lux have today (3 September) shared the new video for their compelling single ‘Ballad of You & I’ which stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Maze Runner). It is also the final track to be taken from their debut EP Barstool Preaching.

The video for the fan favourite track was filmed with the band performing on the Essex Coast and they called in a favour from their friend Brodie-Sangster by asking him to star in it. Watch it below:

Frontman Lewis Duffin adds: “‘The Ballad of You & I’ seemed to be the moment that crowned the EP for us. A step in a different direction away from our comfort zone, our best attempt at a pop tune. We thought it was important that it didn’t get lost within the turmoil of Covid and because it’s so vivid of a tune, putting a video to it seemed perfect.”

On their previous track, and EP opener, ‘Tabloid Newspaper’, we said: “‘Tabloid Newspaper’ unfolds and is just a damn fine piece of danceable-do-good. With a drive choppier than Damon Albarn’s fringe, never forget when the time comes, if you’re not crying “twistaaaah of the truth” with pint in hand then you’re better off not singing at all”.

Barstool Preaching is out now.
