BIMM Manchester’s The Navettes are back with their brilliant new video for ‘Gorgeous’ – check it out…

What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

It’s about two things really; instant attraction which captures those moments where you see someone across the room and you’re just instantly obsessed, and vanity culture which we see as our generation’s focus upon appearance, selfies, and social media likes.

What did your process involve?

Gorgeous Tom had a demo idea for a mellow riffy track which hilariously, at the time, everyone hated. We then had a four hour rehearsal tinkering about, picking it apart, and out came the track in its full sparkly form.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Gorgeous, Synth, Pop.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

Contacts. 100% the best thing about studying at BIMM are the contacts and the people you meet, you never know who you could be sat next to!
