Watch the animated video for Romance Ain’t Dead now.
Arriving with an adorably animated video (featuring a certain punk-poet protagonist in cartoon caricature), Sean’s latest single Romance Ain’t Dead is a ska-tinged scorcher sure to warm the cockles right through the winter months.
Opening-up about the track Sean says: “Romance Ain’t Dead is a song about escaping the mundane. I spent so many hours people-watching and day-dreaming whilst working in retail. Hoping for a bit of adventure and spontaneity. It’s a hard one to sing but satisfying to play!”
The single arrives as Sean plots a series of big European support shows with kindred spirits: The Levellers. Joining his fellow South Coast folk punk heroes for the whole run, Sean will find himself back on home turf again for dates in Cardiff, Brighton, Bristol, Norwich, and Nottingham as the leg bends back to Blighty (21-25 Nov).
Then, driving home for Christmas to the promise of his biggest ever hometown gig Sean will be receiving something of a hero’s welcome as he headlines Southampton’s 1865 on 15 December – a show euphorically dubbed: ‘SEAN McGOWAN: THE SON OF SMITH COMES HOME FOR CRIMBO’.
