Rory Cameron leads the quintet, writing numbers that give a nod back to The Byrds and The Beatles. The video for upbeat “You Must Be Dreaming,” shot and edited by Alec Nicholas, sets the vibe perfectly. We reminisce to a time where bands performed in suits and ties and answered applause with a bow of appreciation. Add a spike to the punch bowl, and the scene changes color completely to the tipsy, sweaty, raucous party you would expect to attend this weekend.
You have three chances to catch The Conquerors this weekend to pick up their new 7” and the trippy t-shirt artwork designed by drummer Jim Button:
