Gathering of Strangers release video for new single, 'Lady'

Manchester five-piece Gathering of Strangers have released the video for their recent single 'Lady', which is out now through Someone Great Records/PIAS. The single follows last year’s debut release 'Nice Hair' and a host of hometown shows, which have begun to build an avid following for the band and their captivating psychedelic rock sound.

'Lady' is an anthemic alt rock track that builds with melodic riffs to a catchy and intoxicating chorus backed by lead singer Conor’s husky vocal. The single was recorded at Manchester’s Hope Mill Studios, mixed by Cenzo Townshend at Decoy Studios and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road. The video perfectly portrays Gathering of Strangers as a band and Conor says; “Lady paints turning a troubled girl into a confident Lady. Constructing a world within the lyrics, the track highlights the true connection between a Lady and her gentleman. With such direct lyrics throughout the song, we have used the dark and captive imagery to relate to not only the volatile relationship but the hostile minds of both lovers”.

The band performed their biggest Manchester headline show to date last month and have announced a host of upcoming shows.

Full dates are below:


  • Thurs 25th       London                     The Rocksteady

  • Fri 10th            Brighton                    The Admiral (The Great Alternative)
  • Fri 24th           Manchester               Dot To Dot

Gathering of Strangers are Conor Rabone (vocals), Tom Wingate (guitar), Bruce Higgs (bass), Peter Crampsey (drums) and Andre Ilkiw (guitar).
