EXCLUSIVE: Talk Is Cheap – Making Of ‘The Good Life’ Music Video

Stoke-based post-hardcore outfit Talk Is Cheap recorded their debut music video for their song ‘The Good Life’ last week, so we decided to capture what went on at the shoot; from setting up the set, the recording of the music video and even witnessing the band attempting to smash an almost indescrutable television. Check it out:

‘The Good Life’ is available on the band’s new ‘The Roots That Hold Us Down’ EP, available from selected digital stores and their official BigCartel store. The music video will be released soon.

Naming their co-headline tour after the Shane Meadows’ film This Is England, both TRC and Lower Than Atlantis are bands with the appearance and message to suit such a name.

With the Norwich crowd the night before causing enough anarchy to literally pull down the venue’s ceiling, the bar is set high for both the bands and the crowd in Stoke to step up to.

Unfortunately we were unable to cover openers and local act Talk Is Cheap due to other press related restraints, though their pop-punk like style heard from outdoors during an interview sounded delightful.
