VIDEO PREMIERE: LibraLibra – ‘Fancy Car’

Having released their epic second EP, Modern Millennial, earlier this year, and fresh from wowing crowds at TGE and receiving acclaim from the likes of Jack Saunders at BBC Radio 1, GIHE total faves LibraLibra have now shared a brand new video for album track ‘Fancy Car‘.

With the vibrancy of the retro, Grease-inspired hand-crafted visuals matching the colourful charisma and frenzied energy of the track perfectly, ‘Fancy Car’ is propelled forwards with a sizzling, empowering spirit. Fizzing with a swirling, psych-infused chaos, it oozes a fierce, immense power as the raging magnificence of front woman Beth’s colossal vocals are interwoven into the track’s gritty, anthemic musicality.

With the visual and lyrical narrative so wonderfully aligned, we’re fully immersed into the story of ‘Fancy Car’ – the highs and lows of intense young love, and the rollercoaster of feelings that can accompany it. Fluctuating between a riotous angst-driven force and glistening soulful majesty, the glorious dynamic splendour of Beth’s vocals lends itself perfectly to the vivid cinematic allure of the animated illustrations.

The video for ‘Fancy Car’ was created by Holly Deanna from previous GIHE headliners and faves CURRLS – and I think you’ll agree that she has encapsulated the fiery essence of LibraLibra perfectly! See more of her art at @heavenlystudio_ .

Track Of The Day: Tiger Mimic – ‘It Was Still Dark’

Having been due to play for us live at The Finsbury last month, GIHE faves Tiger Mimic are helping to ease the sadness of missing live gigs by sharing an exquisite homemade new video for their latest single ‘It Was Still Dark’.

Driven by thrashing beats, gritty racing riffs and the soaring sleek vocals of front woman Jess, ‘It Was Still Dark’ builds the tension as it’s propelled by a furious, frenzied energy. A truly addictive slice of anthemic, raw rock.

‘It Was Still Dark’ is accompanied by a wonderful animated DIY video, depicting the thrill and suspense of the lyrical storytelling of the track in a series of brilliant illustrations by guitarist Bram.

Produced by Kevin Vanbergen (Kid Kapichi, Nova Twins), ‘It Was Still Dark’ is out now. Listen on Spotify.
