Gaz Coombes has just released a video for “Deep Pockets” - the first single from his forthcoming third full length album World’s Strongest Man, set for release May 4 2018 via Hot Fruit/Caroline International. Watch the clip via YouTube HERE.
The self-directed, filmed, and edited clip features Gaz undertaking one of the trippiest Uber-pool journeys from the back of a car in Los Angeles. Gaz says of the clip:
“I shot the ‘Deep Pockets’ video on a shoestring, mostly in LA at the end of 2017. The idea came from the lyrics & memories of weird night drives over the years - a never-ending car journey laced with paranoia, intermittent hallucinations & unexpected carpooling. I liked the idea of getting together with some fun, interesting people in a car at night, filming it all and just seeing what happened. It worked out well. They all did great.”
Gaz has also announced a run of solo US tour dates starting early March - Tickets HERE. Full itinerary and more information below.

World’s Strongest Man is released on Hot Fruit/Caroline International on May 4th, 2018. The record is inspired variously by Grayson Perry’s book “The Descent of Man,” Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked toxic masculinity, hip-hop, and a whole lot more for a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock‘n’roll record.
