Folk-tinged Americana heroes Noble Jacks have dropped the new lyric video for latest single This Is Real.

A staple of 2019’s Stay Awake album, the track combines hero worship with a whistle-stop tour of the band’s home town Brighton.

And This Is Real builds on the buzz around a duo which completed a hugely successful run of UK dates last month – including a sold-out show in Camden.

“We just had an absolute blast on our UK tour, seeing so many friendly faces and new,” said band members Will Page and Matty Deveson.

“We love the adventure of touring and were blown away by the numbers that turned out to our shows – including our sold-out show in London!

“It’s so warming to have such supportive friends and fans coming out for a good stomping night with Noble Jacks!”

This Is Real caps off a terrific 2019 for a band on the rise.

And Deveson added: “We’re really excited to share this new video which shows a slightly alternative side to Noble Jacks. 

“The song is really about meeting your hero, plucking up the courage to talk to them and fantasising about befriending them. 

“It’s about realising we’re all just human and the come down to earth: a bit like when we get home from awesome shows across the country.  

“The song also reminds us of late night drives back to Brighton, on our way home from shows, so we incorporated a bit of this in the video too. 

“We love our home city, and it turns out Brighton looks pretty great at night!”
