Hot on the heels of last month's irresistibly catchy first official solo release in four years 'My Boy', Lyttelton superstar Marlon Williams has unveiled a lovelorn second single and announced third solo album My Boy is out in September. Donning dapper hat and coat (not unlike the famous Italo disco 'Love Spy' Mike Mareen) in Sports Team's gripping and noirish accompanying video, Williams portrays a sad figure unhealthily consumed by romantic passion — obsessing over VHS tapes in his squalid apartment, chasing shadows down back alleys and peeping through binoculars whilst always 'Thinking Of Nina' (portrayed by Alice May Connolly). Sounding in superb voice over a transcendently toe-tapping rock-soul groove, experience the turbulent emotions of 'Thinking Of Nina' below and peruse Williams' words on the release — made with support from NZ On Air...

"This is a song about the dangers of wearing different faces in different places, of waging wars on multiple fronts; of having so many selves as to not be a self at all. Also at play is the dark phenomenon of White Knight Syndrome; the desire to simplify, infantilise, protect and ultimately commodify an object of desire.

"The video, imagined and concocted by the exciting duo who make up Sports Team and myself draws on the silliest stylings of the 80s New Wave a la Spandau Ballet’s ‘Gold’ and Duran Duran’s 'A View To A Kill.'"

Marlon Williams' third solo album 'My Boy' is out September 9th via Universal Music NZ.
