Watch: Jockstrap ‘Concrete Over Water’

London-based duo Jockstrap (Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye) have shared their brand new single and video ‘Concrete Over Water’; another hint at a still-to-come TBA debut full-length record on their new label home Rough Trade / Remote Control. ‘Concrete Over Water’ received its first national airplay from Lauren Laverne on her BBC Radio 6 Music Breakfast show. Watch the video below!

Commenting on the new single – which comes complete with hugely inventive and ambitious storytelling visuals, directed by the band themselves and Eddie Whelan – Ellery says: “‘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. 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.” Skye adds of the single’s origins: “I can’t quite remember producing ‘Concrete Over Water’. I was living in my auntie’s attic at the time and it was extremely hot. Georgia sent me the demo fully written, then I sent her the song fully produced. That was it.”

Jockstrap’s discography is restless and inventive, traversing everything from liberating dancefloor techno to off-kilter electro pop, trip-hop and confessional song writing; an omnivorous sonic palette that takes on a cohesive maturity far beyond their ages of only 24 years old. They have cemented themselves as one of the most vital young groups to emerge from London’s melting pot of musical cultures.
