Theatrical punks Felix Hagan & The Family have today released the video for new single ‘Gene Kelly’, taken from their acclaimed debut album Attention Seeker. The band have also been announced as support for the Arkells across the UK and Europe this month.
‘Gene Kelly’ is a narration of musical ambition and the video follows a story of an aspiring artist visualised in the form of animated cartoon doodles, accompanied by the track’s glorious exuberance and infectious chorus, a soaring crescendo of anthemic, feel-good catchiness.
Regarding ‘Gene Kelly’ Felix Hagan says, “Gene Kelly is my favourite track on the album. It was written about the madness that comes with doing this job for a living, and is the definitive statement of who we are as a band and what we want to give to people”.
The band will be on the road later this month, playing ten dates across the UK and Europe supporting Arkells. The UK dates commence in Bristol on November 21st and finish in Brighton on the 29th, with a date at London’s Heaven on the 23rd. Full dates can be found below.
