Following up the release of their explosive initial singles ‘Gold’, ‘Snowfall’ and ‘The War’ over the last year, which have since gone onto receive airplay on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio London, named as Jack Saunders’ New Wave, and found praise from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, CLASH, GIGWISE, Indie Shuffle, Wonderland, Fault Magazine, The Most Radicalist, Atwood Magazine and Record of the Day, indie-psych heroes Hi Frisco have now returned to deliver the official video for their latest single ‘Headspin’ ft. Charlotte Spiral, lifted from their forthcoming debut album ‘Goodbye, Blue Monday’.
Much like their output to date, ‘Headspin’ continues that bold and atmospheric energy the pair looks to bring to everything they create. Taking its bright and psychedelic texture and combining it with a fresh and cinematic landscape has given the new video an enticing and captivating aesthetic. Led by director Alex Evans, the video uses a mixture of art-house inspirations and special effects to create a vivid and ethereal accompaniment to their newest release.
Speaking about the new video, the band’s Henry Eastham said, “We picked a picturesque field in Kent nearby to director Alex’s family home. The idea was to capture the quintessential ‘golden hour’ summer sunset, which was to be the backdrop for the video. However, what we actually got was to be sat in a field being continuously rained on for 3 hours. Not entirely pleasant, but, turned out to be a fortuitous blip in the meteorology department, as it sits in line with the mood of the song far better.”
While director Alex Evans added, “The Headspin music video is a meta modern spin on vintage black and white romantic movies. Set in a rainy empty field the two discuss the spin of a relationship whilst alternating chairs in a perpetual yin and yang. The ironic combination of a miserable black and white day and the love song that is Headspin clash, exploding in love red sparks and distortion. A volatile metaphorical spin of highs and lows, monotone and colour.”

Along with their previously unveiled tracks ‘The War’ and ‘Gold’, ‘Headspin’ has been lifted from the band’s eagerly-awaited debut album ‘Goodbye, Blue Monday’, which is set to land on October 9th. With the title lifted from a passage in a Kurt Vonnegut book and one of a selection of slogans drawn on the side of the bombs waiting to be taken to war, their first collection looks to explore the many avenues that the psychedelic sound has to offer as they look to create a bright and soaring initial offering that will cement them as one of the most captivating new acts of the year so far.
