Darktown Jubilee – Breakdown

Impact date: 25th June 2012


If you’re not one of the more than 3,500 people who’ve already watched the excellent video for Manchester’s Darktown Jubilee‘s Breakdown on YouTube over the last 5 days, you won’t know that it stars the ace Salfordian actor Steve Evets (Looking for Eric, Pirates of the Carribean), or that it was directed by multi award-winning film director Jason Wingard (Grand prize winner of the Virgin Media Shorts competition). You probably won’t know that the video’s storyline is set against the backdrop of last summer’s riots either.

Breakdown is the first single from Darktown Jubilee‘s debut album ‘The World, the Flesh and the Devil’. Big things are likely to happen for these guys, so you might want to remember where you heard about them first.
