HAERTS share their official music video for their first single “Wings”. Directed by Emily Kai Bock, who also created videos for Grizzly Bear and Grimes for instance, the video unfolds from the point of view of a young boy who captures his small town surroundings with an old Super 8mm camera. You can view the video HERE and is premiered by Gorilla vs Bear HERE, who says “One of the most unstoppable songs of the last year or so gets some worthy visuals, as the brilliant Emily Kai Bock showcases her penchant for making magic by using seemingly unremarkable or commonplace series of events — aside from when a kid apparently takes flight near the end — to elegantly create something beautiful and poignant and moving, befitting such a timeless song as “Wings.””
HAERTS is a band from New York hailing from Germany, England, and the United States. The group consists of Nini Fabi, Ben Gebert, Garrett Ienner, Derek McWilliams, and Jonathan Schmidt. The band’s first single, Wings, was produced in collaboration with Jean-Philip Grobler (aka St. Lucia). HAERTS’ debut album is due in 2013.
The single “Wings” and the Wildcat! Wildcat! remix are available through Neon Gold / Columbia Records on vinyl / digitally today, April 9th. You can purchase the vinyl HERE.
Late last year, the band revealed their first song “Wings” and an unofficial video for the song HERE, before going to SXSW where they played the Columbia/Filter, Laneways, IndieShuffle, Portals/Hype Machine and Neon Gold Records showcases. The band is ready to share their upcoming album live first on tour.
