Manchester’s The Minx have been cherry-picked to be the sound and faces (or maybe the feet!) of Dr. Marten‘s international Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign.
Dr Marten’s spotted the band’s stylish no-nonsense look, top pop tunes, and the close connection that they had with their fans; and quickly realised that they were a perfect fit for their new video and print ads.
Their next single ‘(Can You Find) My Head?” will feature on the video and print advertising everywhere – and will be part of a huge social media campaign called #standforsomething – see more of The Minx on the Dr Marten’s Facebook page.
Impact date: 03/10/11 (Stone Soup Arts)
Manchester‘s Daystar return with the second single from their debut album. ‘Off Our Heads‘ is an unashamedly northern take on the notion of escapism from the realities of unemployment and life in the built up urban environment. The song evokes feelings of nostalgia and stoic melancholy (and that ubiquitous sense of regret over ‘lost love’).
Influenced in equal measure by the 60s, the legendary Brian Wilson and (the equally legendary) Syd Barrett, the single sees the band demonstrate the versatility of their indie-rock style. An anthem for the insomniac on a hypnotic summer’s night, with an extended psychedelic ending. The Daystar world domination master-plan is stepping up a gear.
