Following its inclusion on the Warren Records compilation Three Minute Heroes – rated four stars in MOJO plus supported by Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Radio X’s John Kennedy, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, BBC 6Music’s Gideon Coe & Kerrang! Radio’s Alex Baker – the track Over Think, by Kingston-Upon-Hull troubadours Elwhaeko, gets a digital release in its own right this summer.
Over Think is a masterfully crafted slice of contemporary dark folk with lyrics supplied by local schoolkids that echo a thoughtful, and sentimental perspective on mental health wellbeing – and this time around it’s set visually to an inspired ballet performance, choreographed and performed by the young girls from Hull’s Skelton Hooper School of Dance and Theatre.

Three Minute Heroes is a thought-provoking album put together by Strummerville & The Warren Youth Initiative from last year’s UK City of Culture – Hull. Fifteen breaks out bands from the area have teamed up with school students from East Yorkshire to give the young people a platform to express their experiences and emotions through music and is targeted to raise awareness around children’s mental health issues.
