Scouting for Girls’ Marlborough video is online now
Indie pop band Scouting for Girls have released the video to their bid for Christmas number 1, which was filmed at Marlborough’s Christmas lights switch-on.
The band spent a day in Marlborough filming scenes in and around the town, culminating with an appearance on the main stage at the Christmas lights switch-on on November 20.
The video – posted on YouTube this morning (December 1) – features the band busking outside Sound Knowledge in Hughenden Yard, and features plenty of local children.
The Castle & Ball doubles as the band’s local, The Swan in Ruislip. Christmas in the Air (Tonight) includes the memorable lyrics:
The shops open late and the school band sings a song,
A crowd gathers as the scout group marches on,
We'll meet our friends they’re drinking in the Swan,
I don’t know where the times gone.
The High Street's closed to all traffic,
We walk in the road and it feels like magic,
When I hold you close nothings ever felt so right,
On a cold dark Christmas night.
