Taken from new album 'Folklore'...

Matthew Edwards & The Unfortunates are true craftsmen.

The band's debut album 'The Fates' was a baroque gem, a folk-indebted piece of off kilter indie songcraft that recalls The Go-Betweens' imperial phase.

New album 'Folklore' is incoming, with the group whetting appetites with a flurry of previews.

Film maker Jonathan Hodgson has stepped in to oversee the video for 'Birmingham', a driving yet poetic return.

Matthew Edwards explains: “After 20 years living in California I returned to Birmingham and ‘Folklore’ is the chronicle of that return”.

The new video picks up on those themes, exploring both the feeling of remoteness and that of return.

Tune in now.
