A NEW single from a Sussex folk band has gone viral after its release on social media.

The new release from Noble Jacks, Dreams Carry Me On, attracted close to half a million views on video site YouTube in just four days.

The song, released earlier this month, now has over 600,000 views on the platform.

The British alternative-indie band praised the amount of support and views the new song had received online.

Band members Will Page and Matty Deveson said: "It's every bands' dream to get such widespread appreciation of their work, which we are so grateful for."

Dreams Carry Me On is a homage to chasing dreams and not giving up, a mantra that is close to the band's hearts.

"It comes from a place of belief in our own dreams as musicians, and we hope the message of holding on to a dream and pursuing it undeterred gives people hope towards their own dreams," they said.

"Despite the pandemic creating a bleak outlook for us touring musicians, we took the opportunity to shoot this video as a reinforcement to our mantra of never giving up and making the best of every situation."

The band are returning to Sussex this evening as part of an ongoing tour, performing at The Factory in Ivy Arch Road in Worthing.

Noble Jacks boast a range of songs in their discography, from upbeat foot-stomping folky tunes to the more heartfelt.

Performing with fiddles, mandolins and guitars, the band have performed at Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival, as well as supporting folk-bluegrass ensemble The Dead South in an O2 across the UK and Ireland.

Their most recent album, Stay Awake, reached the top ten in the official UK Americana album charts, with a launch party at Brighton's Concorde 2 being sold out.
