The High Wire release video LNOE starring Ray Winstone

The High Wire share the video for ‘LNOE’, the lead track from their new album ‘Found In Honey’, due 14th July.

The cinematic video stars Ray Winstone and was directed by Mat Whitecross (Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll, Spike Island). Set to the backdrop of Whitecross' contemporary film noir, ‘Ashes’, it provides a striking visual for the moving track. Watch it here.

‘LNOE’ (out 30th June) purposefully steps the band away from the shoegaze fuzz of their previous albums – 2010’s ‘The Sleep Tape’ and 2008’s ‘Ahead of the Rain’. It boasts clear, honest production with layered strings, creating an emotive and driven offering from the London-based trio.

‘Found In Honey’ was produced by The High Wire, Andy Rugg and Rik Simpson (PJ Harvey, Portishead) and was recorded at Coldplay’s Beehive Studio in London. While R&B, psychedelia, shoegaze and folk can all be heard on the record - it’s the pop influences that resonate loudest, with key nods to 60s Motown, New Order, Soul II Soul and Gorillaz.

The High Wire began as a solo vehicle for singer/songwriter Tim Crompton. Soon after the completion of ‘Ahead of the Rain’ in 2008, the line up expanded and now counts west coast Canadian Alexia Hagen and UK native Ross Forrest as core members alongside Crompton.
