Splashing kaleidoscopic colour across their jangling new single Seafood, Beaty Heart release the self-directed video to accompany the track.
Partly inspired by the food fight scene in the movie Hook, the band have described the video as a "midnight meal gone bad" with band member Charlie Rotberg adding:
"We wanted to capture that awkward feeling of being hungry yet disgusted at the same time, when your stomach churns and you can't tell whether you’re starving or sick. We've never done a video with such a clear narrative that involved acting, but luckily for us it all tasted revolting so there wasn't much need for that..."
Primary coloured burgers, neon jelly, artistically displayed fish, the multi-coloured tea-time trip is the perfect visual execution of the London band's sound. Described as 'psychedelic drum pop' and 'funfair-punk’ Seafood will be released on a limited run of 100 cassettes (with an instant download) on the 8th April through the Heart Throb Records Bandcamp page Watch the video below.
