Two weeks ago, the Southend-On-Sea quintet San Quentin released their latest single, 'Serotonin'. Since then, the track has received well deserved plaudits from fans and the music press alike, with San Quentin proving they are now more than just "ones to watch".
Us here at Our Sound Music are extremely privileged to unveil the music video for 'Serotonin' below. Creatively directed, the video is shot in and around a busy pub, with frontman Owen Eves working his way through the bar. The vocal is delivered in an attention grabbing and endearing way, before the video turns the tables slightly when we reach the chorus - I'll let you see for yourself but needless to say it's a lot of fun:
'Serotonin' is a fun track and the video really captures its almost tongue-in-cheek vibe. A fair comparison both musically and visually would be to The Reytons, which is a compliment. Much like the South-Yorkshire upstarts, San Quentin are sure to garner a word of mouth following, spearheaded by this brilliant single and accompanying video.
Forming in 2019, San Quentin are named after the famous Johnny Cash album 'San Quentin Prison'. The band see themselves as very much working class which is reflected in their wry, observational lyrics. Having previously sold out the infamous London venue The Water Rats and performing at The Isle Of Wight Festival, the band give you a feeling of being on the cusp of something really, really special.
The band themselves say: “We invite you to immerse yourself in the experience of Serotonin. Let your ears revel in its driving melodies & energetic instrumentation.” Invitation accepted.
