UK duo Jockstrap (Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye) are back with new single "Concrete Over Water," which they say is a hint for what to expect from their debut album, due later this year via Rough Trade. "Concrete Over Water" begins as a lullaby before blasting into the daylight with shiny, swirling electropop and then back again across six dizzying minutes. You can watch the video, directed by the band and Eddie Whelan, below

“‘Concrete Over Water’ was written on a Summer’s night in 2019 in a flat in Farringdon which was above a pub, and above a train line," says Ellery. "The place hummed when the trains went under. The video was born out of the celestial themes in the song. Eddie and I created the characters (Moongirl, Voyager, Magma Boy, etc.) to explore the feelings of wonder, inspiration and the search for answers, to reflect what the song represents to me.”

Jockstrap have UK and European tour dates on the horizon and those are listed below.
