Keston Cobblers Club: Jupiter

UK upbeat folk band Keston Cobblers Club have released their new single, Jupiter, a song that was inspired by singer Julia Lowe attending a "digital" astronomy class during lockdown. She found herself wondering what might be up there and considered the fact that her friends might be staring at the night sky as well, just as Jupiter showed itself. In other words: they might be sharing the same experience without being in each other's company.

It gave her hope and it led to a joyous piece of music, with the traditional instruments accordion, banjo and guitar interacting with synthesizers plus a drum kit fyring on all cylinders. The video has the band members dancing and moping out on the screen of an old school Commodore monitor, with the singer breaking out of the confines as if to celebrate the ability to reconnect with the outside world again.

Jupiter will be included on their new album Astronomy, due for release on April 22 via Beatnik Geek Records. The album is available for pre-order here.
