Rising songwriter and producer Chaney has unveiled a new music video for latest single ‘Let U Know’ – inspired by a recent police hunt for a ‘Noel Gallagher look-alike’ seen ‘licking windows’ in Swindon. See it first on NME below.
Back in October, Swindon North Police made headlines when they launched an appeal for information after a ‘Noel Gallagher lookalike’ was seen ‘swigging from a bottle of White Lightning and licking windows’. “We received reports of a man resembling Noel Gallagher in Swindon at around 5.30pm yesterday who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and was licking windows – not a ‘Wonderwall’ and he may have been ‘Half the World Away’,” a police spokesman said. “It’s believed he was with another person causing a general nuisance.
“The incident was nowhere near the Oasis, but in the town centre, near the Wyvern Theatre. If anyone heard or saw anything suspicious in the area, please Don’t Look Back in Anger but contact us on 101.”
Now, Swindon’s own 20-year-old Chaney has created a tribute to one of the year’s most bizarre news stories in his new music video.
“I saw this article, that said ‘Noel Gallagher Lookalike Spotted in Swindon, Drinking White Ace and Licking Windows’,” said Chaney. “So we decided to recreate that.”
Watch above as the chase is on, as Chaney tears through the streets of his hometown while being pursued by the parka-wearing, cider-swelling ‘Gallagher lookalike’.
‘Let U Know’ is released via Skint Records on January 12.
Responding to the initial story, Gallagher simply replied: “Nowt to do with me mate. I’m still away on holiday.”
Gallagher also made headlines this weekend for his part in the Manchester derby. He described the current Manchester City squad as his “favourite team of all time” after discovering that the music of Oasis was responsible for starting a furious dressing room brawl.
The Blues reportedly played ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ after their 2-1 derby victory over Manchester United earlier this month, prompting Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho to storm into the away dressing room.
