A couple of week The Button Collective gave Timber and Steel the exclusive first listen to their upcoming EP The Lonesome Sea and now we’ve been treated to their brand new video “Adieu Sweet Lovely Nancy”.

A little about the track from The Button Collective’s frontman Brodie Buttons:

“This traditional song of the sea is a sailor’s last words to his love before embarking on a long voyage,” Buttons explains. “He tells her of the perils he will face at sea to earn their wage. He finishes with the cruel irony of the hardships they still endure upon his return due to him having spent all his wages at the bar drinking to his wife and family back home, forcing him to once again return to sea.”
