To accompany the release, theme tune for the album “OUR CITY” featuring Maxine Peake is now available. “OUR CITY” is a collaboration between Dave Viney and the band narcissus. The initial idea for the video was to feature Maxine Peake until the current social measures meant this wasn’t going to be possible, however Maxine sorted some amazing artwork to ensure this still happened! Check it out in full splendor:
