The family of Harry Hains has released the visually stunning animated video for second posthumous single as ANTIBOY, “Bang Bang,” a reinterpretation of the classic Nancy Sinatra song (‘Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)’), set against the backdrop of glitchy computer game-style production and dubstep skittering drums. CLICK HERE to watch. CLICK HERE to stream/download. Created by Harry’s brother, Sam Hains, viewers are transported into a video game utopia where art, music and gaming converge. The video is also animated by @base__mode and produced by JustinMillerCreative. “Bang Bang” follows the release of “Good Enough”. The first animated video for the track, also produced by Sam Hains and animated and edited by @FVCKRENDER, depicts Harry’s vision for the future of our world, showing the souls of two beings – equally human and bionic – longing for connection, acceptance, and love.

Both singles, released under Harry’s artist name ANTIBOY, are the first two tracks from Harry’s forthcoming concept album A Glitch in Paradise, out next month.
A multi-dimensional and compelling musician, actor (most noted for American Horror Story and The OA) artist, and model, Harry didn’t define or limit himself by the constructs society enforces upon us. Offering a portal into age of existence where there is complete unparalleled freedom to live without preconceptions and societal labels, through the prism of Harry‘s true artistic being, ANTIBOY, his vision for our future is relevant now more than ever at a time when society is rising up to break down old systems and demanding equality for all.
Harry’s concept of ANTIBOY (CLICK HERE to watch the trailer) offers a portal into an age of existence where there is complete unparalleled freedom to live without preconceptions and societal labels. In a digital utopia where there is no inequality, prejudice, or toxicity, Harry (as the genderless transhuman being ANTIBOY) imagines a world in which the human mind and the bionic body merge. Harry lived this through his own identity, which was gender fluid, shapeshifting and open to interpretation just like his music. The focus on the merger of the human consciousness with artificial intelligence, of non-binary existence, and Harry’s robotic, neutral vocal delivery negates gender and labels, opening up a conversation about what the future of our species should and could be.
