Irish four-piece The Academic are back and on form with new single, 'Anything Could Happen'.
Out now through Capitol Records and shared below via visuals directed by Hope Kemp and Ronan Corrigan, featuring couples shot enduring lockdown right across the globe, the single was produced by Nick Hodgson and lifted from a new EP to be announced shortly.
“‘Anything Could Happen’ is a rallying cry to the people in our lives who find themselves stuck in cycles of mundanity and monotony,” says lead singer Craig Fitzgerald of the catchy, pop-fuelled track.
“We hope it inspires people to be kind to themselves and take control of their futures", adding on the vudeo that it had "been a strange one": “We were due to shoot it a few weeks back but with all the movement restrictions in place, everything changed. We had to can our initial idea for the video and come up with something a bit more DIY.”
