KELLY FINNEGAN: I Don’t Wanna Wait + ‘Catch Me I’m Falling’ video

KELLY FINNEGAN:  I Don't Wanna Wait + 'Catch Me I'm Falling' videoThose who haven’t had enough smouldering soul of the Lee Fields variety lately will be champing at the bit when they hear the opener and lead single from forthcoming album The Tales People Tell by Monophonics lead singer Kelly Finnegan which employs a similar sonic aesthetic to Field’s work on Big Crown. As if that’s not enough, there’s also a new video for Catch Me I’m Falling which is also on the album but – er – seems to have been released several months before the ‘lead’ single. And while the PR has it that the falsetto Finnegan uses on this adds a Curtis Mayfield touch on this latter track, early Delfonics might be a closer comparison still. What about that video though? Surely the best way to capture a vibe of retro soulful love ballad must be to employ that lo-fi wobbly animation style and depict Finnegan as a lovelorn green vampire and (occasionally) a lovelorn green vampire/ cherub hybrid that looks like a friend of noughties animated web sensation, Salad Fingers. Yep, that should do it. LP, The Tales People Tell, follows at the start of May.
