New York, NY (Top40 Charts) UK-based four-piece indie rock band Voodoo Bandits will be sharing their latest dynamic music video for 'Empty Swimming Pool via Superblue Records'. The music video premiered via CLASH Magazine while the single was premiered via Atwood Magazine. The band has been featured on noteworthy Youtube channels such as Fancy Melancholic and Sounds New Sounds Good and have collected nearly 140 000 plays across streaming platforms. With their debut single being made Track of the Week on Indie Rocks Radio Manchester, Voodoo Bandits have also received heavy rotation on Idobi Radio's "Anthm" playlist as well as being featured on Spotify's 'Hot New Bands' Editorial Playlist. Their previous single, 'Ride The Wave' was premiered via XS Noize and featured in Indie Central Music, Echoes and Dust and Music Injection. 'Empty Swimming Pool' was produced by Dave Armstrong (Back Door Slam) and mixed and mastered by Manchester-based producer Jamie McIntyre (The Covasettes and The Flitz).

Hailing from the Bee Gees original neighbourhood, the Isle of Man, Voodoo Bandits currently have two members living on their home turf and two attending university in Liverpool and Newcastle. The band is comprised of Ben Donaldson (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), Corey Vaughan (Lead Guitar), Nathan Vaughan (Drums) and Charlotte Wilby (Bass). Covering nearly all of the stages of development, the band has members who learnt how to play instruments from an early age prior to high school, their early teen years and one member even picking up the bass guitar as a hobby just over a year ago. Having headlined in cities including Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Manchester last year, Voodoo Bandits are looking forward to their support slots lined up next in Liverpool and Newcastle.

With a focus on upbeat and energetic music, Voodoo Bandits use inspiration from the likes of Circa Waves and Hockey Dad to carve out their own vibrant, full of life sound. In turn, their style takes after some of the indie-rock greats, including The Strokes, Car Seat Headrest and Grouplove

Embracing youthful bright colours, Voodoo Bandits venture into an indoor skatepark for the music video of 'Empty Swimming Pool'. Opening with a cheerful electric guitar riff and slamming drums, the track takes electronic embellishments and pairs them with a solid bassline and tight grooves. The energy in the skatepark meets the same vigorous energy within the song, electrifying its listeners with an exuberant chorus, compact riffs and dripping reverbs. With flashbacks to the 90s lifestyle of hardcore skating, the music video is sure to appeal to all those who are young at heart.

Speaking of the concept behind the music video, Voodoo Bandits tell us, "We wanted to create a fun, easy going, video that accompanied the vibe of the song. Expressing our personalities as a band; to us the song sounds like a skateboard on a half-pipe, if that makes any sense! So we went down to our local indoor skatepark, grabbed some B-roll of ourselves and some skaters and got jamming! To top it off we used some 90s video cam aesthetics to fit the theme."

Upcoming shows:
11 April 2020 - The Head of Steam, Newcastle (Support for Bedroom Boredom)
16 May 2020 - The Royal Hall, Villa Marine, Isle of Man (Support for The Lightning Seeds)
