UK punks Indoor Pets have shared the video for Hi, their debut single since signing to Wichita Recordings. The deceptively simple, yet entertaining video was directed by band member Rob Simpson. Watch it via YouTube below.
About the video, frontman & guitarist Jamie Glass said: “We wanted the video to reflect the idea that a lot of people (myself included) are too busy seeking short-term fixes, i.e getting “high” via Space Hopper and trampoline, to actually earn any long term achievements. The video uses the band’s usual tongue in cheek methods to deliver the underwhelming message: Some of us are too busy reliving our youth to focus on our futures and you will never get as high as you did playing in your childhood garden.”
The track was produced by the band’s guitarist, James Simpson and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Ash, Yak, Parquet Courts). With its witty, self-deprecating lyrics on top of a hook laden blast, Hi is a perfect introduction to the band’s power-pop stylings, fuzzed-out riffs and infectious melodies.
