High Hazels: “Banging On My Door”
High Hazels, the Sheffield, U.K. quartet, are getting ready to release their self-titled debut album later this month, and now they’ve revealed the music video for “Banging On My Door,” the lead single from the set. As we’ve come to expect from High Hazels, the song is a gem of vintage pop with a dreamy atmosphere. The opening guitar riff slinks around lazily, with an “almost drunken feel to it.” The retro drums and clever chord changes evoke classic ’60s songwriting but with a modern lo-fi rock production aesthetic. In the Libby Burke Wilde-directed music video, lead singer James Leesley gets ready and then heads out to band practice. It’s a simple concept, shot in a beautiful black and white, that lets the song speak for itself.
