Spill Magazine. premiered the video for “Employment and Enjoyment” today, the first single from “Primitive Feelings”. This is an inspiring story about making lemonade out of life’s hand grenades, featuring High Dials in real job situations (also a very positive ape).
The song is a world-weary take on rock n roll’s promise of eternal life (“so far, it hasn’t killed me”) that pays unexpected tribute to the Bee Gees over echoes of 60s garage and 90s shoegaze, with loud and proud Latin percussion and timpani throughout. Stream it here!
The lo-fi video features plenty of VHS-era trickery, Saturday morning cartoon mash-ups, visual feedback loops and Max looking a lot like Leon from The Professional.
For a third season successive season you can hear High Dials music playing while U.S. president Frank Underwood engages in dastardly deeds. Just-released season 4 of the Netflix series “House of Cards” features “Echoes and Empty Rooms” and golden oldie “Chinese Boxes” in the background. Listen in and spot the tunes!
The High Dials are proud to unveil a new video by frequent collaborator Ghost Mago this week – “Evil Twin” from “In the A.M. Wilds”. Based on projections from the band’s live shows, it captures the doppelgänger vibe very well. Enjoy!
The High Dials will play in Latin America for the first time in November. An upcoming tour takes the band to Mexico and Colombia and includes festival slots and headlining shows.
The High Dials are excited to be playing songs from newest album “In the A.M. Wilds” so far from home. Be sure to follow the band on Instagram for what should be a steady stream of exotic pics!
The band also unveiled a new video for “Conquistadores” this week (the “Flags” remix), giving us a glimpse at what their South American adventure may look like.
Brooklyn Vegan premiered the official video for “Echoes and Empty Rooms” today.
Directed by Push 1 Stop, the clip features Trevor and Robbie submerged in echoing imagery feedback.
Echoes and Empty Rooms is the title track from the new album “In the A.M. Wilds”, which BV says “nicely mixes atmospherics and noise without sacrificing pop hooks… their MO since the early 00’s”. Get it HERE!
