Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders share video for "To Keep & Be Kept"

Playmates is the fourth album and first North American release with Fat Possum of Australian singer/songwriter Jack Ladder.
Highlighted by radiating synthesizers, glam guitars, industrial stomp and a ‘70s flecked twang, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders emerge with a record that blurs the stereotypical lines of genre and style while Ladder’s one of a kind baritone slashes at love and darkness like a heavy blade.   Today, the band reveals the “To Keep & To Be Kept” video with FADER, featuring the guest vocals of Sharon Van Etten.

Directed by Alex Smith (Peaches, Iggy Pop, Coldplay), Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders made use of vintage video TV equipment to resemble The Temptations as if they were replacing Sparks as the last band in heaven.
Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders are set to kick off a national fall tour on December 1st in NYC, just one week after completing a support run for Florence & The Machine across Australia and New Zealand. Be sure to catch the band’s acclaimed live show in a city near you!
