Indoor Pets Share Video For Hi
Having recently unveiled Hi, their debut for Wichita Recordings, Indoor Pets, have today shared the video for the track.
The deceptively simply, yet hugely entertaining video was directed by Rob Simpson of the band. Talking about the video, Jamie of the band 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), Hi, with its witty, self-depreciating lyrics on top of a hook laden blast is a perfect introduction to the band’s power-pop stylings, fuzzed-out riffs and infectious melodies.
