Sussex folk group goes viral on YouTube with new song launch

A NEW single from a Sussex folk group has gone viral after its social media release.

The new version of Noble Jacks, Dreams Carry Me On, garnered nearly half a million views on the YouTube video site in just four days.

The song, released earlier this month, now has more than 600,000 views on the platform.

The British alternative-indie group praised the amount of support and views the new song has received online.

Band members Will Page and Matty Deveson said, “It is every band’s dream to have such an appreciation for their work, for which we are very grateful.”

Dreams Carry Me On is a tribute to the pursuit of dreams and not to give up, a mantra close to the heart of the band.

“It comes from a place of belief in our own dreams as musicians, and we hope that the message of holding onto a dream and pursuing it undeterred gives people hope for their own dreams.” , they said.

“Despite the pandemic creating bleak prospects for us touring musicians, we took the opportunity to shoot this video to reinforce our mantra to never give up and make the most of every situation.”

The group returns to Sussex this evening as part of an ongoing tour, performing at The Factory at Ivy Arch Road in Worthing.

Noble Jacks offers a range of songs in its discography, from catchy folk tunes to heartfelt ones.

Playing with violins, mandolins and guitars, the group has performed at Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival, while supporting the folk-bluegrass ensemble The Dead South in an O2 across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Their most recent album, Stay Awake, reached the top ten of the official UK Americana albums charts, with a launch party at sold-out Concorde 2 in Brighton.
