East London quintet DEXTERS are set to release their third single from debut album Shimmer Gold; titled ‘Cloudfest’. To coincide with the singles release, which is set for 01 September, the band have released a video which you can see above.

Speaking about the new track; Dexters frontman Tom says:

We wrote this song last summer after we’d played Boardmasters Festival in Cornwall which is this beautiful festival on top of a cliff over looking the sea. We’re all high on life and everything else and got back to the tents and had a jam. The lyrics are “if you don‘t feel inspired, you must be dead inside” just rolled out. It’s a feel-good song about being high on life – who better to get star in the video than Mr Nice! On the way back from the video shoot from Kent we drove back to London. He was pointing out areas nearby he’d hid a stash. Quick as a flash we asked if it’s still there. Quicker than a flash came the reply ‘Long gone, sonny!

The band will be touring the new album across the UK in November; with tickets for the shows on sale now.
