Directed by good old friends of Chief, and long-time High Flying Birds collaborators Dan Cadan and Jonathan Mowatt (Skully,) the music video also features a cameo from another Mancunian legend John Robb.
The video filmed in Manchester captures the band performing inside the city’s stunning historic venue New Century Hall – a key location in Manchester’s musical heritage having hosted performances by Jimmy Hendrix and The Rolling Stones.
Council Skies opens an introspective and personal commentary on Noel’s most formative years. It’s wistful and evocative. It’s a true love letter to the North.
Dan has now joined the team at Chief so expect to see more from him over the coming months.
