Norway’s Bokassa kickstart a new chapter today, unveiling their blisteringly anthemic new single 'Hellbilly Handfishin’'.
The video sees the trio take to the streets of rural Norway in a rental car en route to playing shows.
Vocalist and guitarist Jørn Kaarstad explains “The song is a tongue in cheek ode to slackers so we decided to make a video in that spirit, attaching a GoPro to the dashboard and whilst we sang along with the track. While we mainly dabble in misanthropic songs about the state of the world, cults and whatnot, we decided to just make a nihilistic party song you can sing along to on a friday night while handfishin' with your bestfriends while chugging some cheap Famous Grouse mixed with Pepsi Max. Because, why not?”.
The track is produced by Yngve Andersen (Blood Command), and is the band’s first single since their signing to Norwegian independent label Loyal Blood Records. Jørn comments “We signed with Norway's Loyal Blood Records because they have released a lot of our favourite records from Norway, so we trust them!”
