The Leisure Society drop video for "Tall Black Cabins"

Folk group The Leisure Society have unveiled their visuals for "Tall Black Cabins", the lead single from upcoming LP The Fine Art Of Hanging On.

Explaining the story behind "Tall Black Cabins", Hemming said:

"I took a visit to Hastings and I noticed several tall black cabins, which inspired the song of the same name. These structures are used by local fisherman for drying their nets. Theirs is a small and shrinking industry, but they have a passion for their trade and keep it going, even though it’s not always financially viable. We recorded the album onto analogue tape at Konk studios and mastered it at Abbey Road Studios. We wanted to make the best record we could, so despite the expense we crafted it in this way - not for money, but for the love of making it."

The Fine Art Of Hanging On will be released by Full Time Hobby on 13 April. It follows the band's Alone Aboard The Ark record, which was released in 2013.
