Retro Video Club

Edinburgh 4 piece Retro Video Club makes an explosive return with their new single ‘Checkmate’, released on March 12. Providing an instant burst of pure indie rock joy,’Checkmate’ focuses on reflection at a time when we’re all considering what’s in the future .'”Checkmate is a song reflecting on your high school days and how the passing of time changes everything,” explains Liam Allison from the band, ” It’s facing reality, realising you need to start growing up because life is starting to get serious. Its ultimately life putting you in Checkmate, but you refusing to accept the game is over”

‘Checkmate’ is the first track to be taken from the band’s new EP ,due out later this year. The band will be announcing a string of new gigs soon, including a huge show at Glasgow.
