We’re rather liking this new synth-driven pop track from hotly-tipped outfit Healyum. Cheap Alcohol follows previous singles Lies, Three Months, and Fools Eyes, all of which are taken from the band’s debut EP Join The Party which was released in July.
The Bedfordshire-based band comprises Jeaná Healy (vocals/guitar), Katie Healy (vocals/keys), Jed Healy (drums), Pip Benjamin (bass guitar), and Nathanael Degning (electric guitar). Singer-songwriter Jeaná Healy explains that if she threw a party, Cheap Alcohol would be the soundtrack.
Video director Sam Kinsella added that he wanted the accompanying visuals to capture the essence of a small London house party and some of the city’s unique residential areas. “Obviously we weren’t reliant on any kind of big production or location budget but it was important for that realness to translate as well… which essentially led to the guys getting really drunk on a Tuesday night and we managed to capture the night as it unfolded!”
