Mealtime go racing in new ‘Rain Like This’ video

Go on a joy ride with the Manchester alt-pop outfit.

Unveiling their first new music of 2020, Manchester-based six-piece Mealtime have shared their brand new glitchy alt-pop bop ‘Rain Like This’.

Accompanied by a video directed by Sara Carpentieri, it sees the group embracing alter-egos inspired by early 00s Cartoon Network. Obviously. Although, it almost didn’t happen when singer Sam nearly witnessed the wrath of the Manchester bailiffs after losing a bus ticket. “I was nervously anticipating a visit from the bailiffs when I heard a knock at the door,” Sam explains. “To my surprise it was a Hermes delivery driver dropping off an all in one racing suit I’d ordered a week prior. I got changed and proceeded to await the bailiffs dressed as a NASCAR Driver.”

We love it when a plan comes together.
