Kowloon Bridge was one of the tenderest tracks off Cloud Boat's impressive debut for Apollo, which we were big fans of in the Dummy office, and now the track has a video to go with it. It features a country boy attempting to adjust to NYC life, whose get-up of plaid shirt and cowboy hat implies he may well have time-travelled his way from that small Southern town (which would kind of explain some of his confusion). The slow and reflective imagery drifts between the colourful chaos of Times Square and his memories of the desert wilds of home, as Cloud Boat's arpeggiated guitars sound out.
