Norwich-based Post-Hardcore trio Other Half are pleased to reveal the video for their new single ‘Tiny Head’.
The track is the latest to be taken from their debut album, 'Big Twenty', set for release on 21st August 2020 via Venn Records (Gallows, WACO, Marmozets & more).
Directed and filmed by bassist Sophie Porter, the video sees the band enjoying a socially-distanced ice cream together during the blazing heat of lockdown, with the resultant melting mess serving as an apt metaphor for the murky story of the song itself.
Commenting on the theme of the single, vocalist Cal Hudson explains: “‘Tiny Head’ is a sad little Pop song about being groomed, used and cut loose without ever really knowing about it. It finds a new set of particularly sh*tty narrators pulling strings, extracting the last juicy bits from an already pretty spent group of people, providing some validation through humiliation. I suppose it’s a lazy metaphor for our old friend capitalism, getting off on watching us all helplessly squirm around.”
“It’s the most melodic thing on the record, swapping out some of the bile for something with a little more swagger. I’d like to think it operates somewhere between the gnarled pop of the Pixies and the boozy swank of Thin Lizzy.”
