West London indie band New York Pavements is not just about music, but also about images. Paul Brooking and Matt Bond are musicians and filmmakers/photographers, Outside The Glasshouse is their multi-media project with strong songs, a photographic essay and and heartbreaking videos. Expect a concept album about the male mid-life crisis, that tells the dark story of one man’s downward spiral of divorce, redundancy and rejection, with a “post-mod mod” sound in which you’ll hear influences from The Stone Roses, Royal Blood and classic rock screamers. Cleverly constructed, synergistic to the max, affectingly successful.
Outside The Glasshouse, written and produced by Paul Brooking, is out now on CD, DVD and vinyl LP via Reggie Music. All profits from the album are donated to mental health charity Andy’s Man Club.
