Chosen by DJ Monk
This week’s selection comes all the way from the Lone Star State, in the form of Austin city rock ‘n’ rollas Black Heart Saints, who are telling us that they are ‘Crazy’ with their new single, the second to be lifted from their new EP, ‘Misery’.
Not that we can see what they have to be miserable about: do they not know how coveted the ÜR ‘Video Of The Week’ award is?
Anyway, the video for ‘Crazy’ is the second of a series of clips and picks up where that for previous single ‘Lines’ left off. In the first instalment, we saw the four musicians get lost in the Texas hill country; now, the guys encounter a strange recording studio with an even stranger producer. Watch as mayhem unfolds during the recording process:
The band say of the song and video:
“‘Crazy’ has sort of a modern rock meets Mötley Crüe vibe. The video was inspired by ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’, and things get really weird when an unexpected acid trip interferes with the recording process. Every video in this film series seems to get better and better, and we are excited to share with our fans.”
