I really can’t get enough of a solid rock riff. This band has an excellent style that reminds me a bit of early Weezer, with some upbeat riffs, and smooth vocals, both of which somewhat belie the deeper message in the lyrics. Also, this video is just really fun and interesting. I really enjoy watching the singer seemingly singing to a lamp, and the instruments blowing shit up. And then we see the “I’ve been broken” start to apply to not only the objects, but the clothes and bodies of the band members themselves. Overall, it’s a really fun group with a lot of potential. I could see them being on an alt. rock station near you very soon, if they aren’t already.
Bio: Following on from releasing their critically praised new single ‘I’ve Been Broken’, Melbourne-based trio Househats have just revealed the accompanying music video – directed by Jack Rintoul (Wendyhouse).
Shot in a studio in Melbourne, ‘I’ve Been Broken’ sees both Househats and director Rintoul on their music video debut. Keeping within the theme of the song, the clip features inanimate objects being broken down and destroyed, and warped beyond reality.
