Watch: New Witch Hats 'Hear Martin'

The newly re-opened Palais in Hepburn Springs, Victoria, provides the perfect setting for Witch Hats’ smoky new video.

Directed by Aimée-Lee X (Belles Will Ring’s Come To The Village’), the clip is for ‘Hear Martin’, a keyboard-driven story about “Australia’s most infamous marksman”, and the first single from the band’s second LP Pleasure Syndrome. The album was recorded over seven days in mid-March at Head Gap Studios in Melbourne with “anti-producer” Casey Rice (The Dirty Three, Tortoise).

“The sound is probably somewhere in between our first album [Cellulite Soul’s] studio sound and our second EP [Solarium Down The Causeway’s] ratty warehouse sound,” bass player Ash Buscombe told M+N back in April. It’ll be out in October.

Drummer is so hot. Has Rob somehow joined the band or was Tom just unable to make the video shoot? I love the thrown guitar. Haha. Good scream face too.


Adrian-Ronalds  said about 3 years ago:

Tom left straight after album was finished. Rob has 'somehow' (he was asked to) join

ricaine had a song about him way back when. 12 x 6. i think.


labrish  said about 3 years ago:

Song and video are both total balls.

Sorry dudes.


tenzenmen  said about 3 years ago:

bryant was a hopeless marksman - is that why he's infamous?


pandad  said about 3 years ago:

Can't help but think of 'yesterday morning' in French (hier matin) when I say the name in my head.


LaxCharisma  said about 3 years ago:

I like. Vinyl? IT wouldn't be a thread without me asking...


JunkiePhil  said about 3 years ago:

Would you ask Tom Petty that?
Come on Lax, you know the answer. ;)


LaxCharisma  said about 3 years ago:

You know what I think I would ask Tom that. I'd like to ask why the Johnny Cash album ''Unchained'' is so stupidly price. Awesome JP. I'll be in touch when the time comes : )


stevereich  said about 3 years ago:

perfectfathers  said about 3 years ago:

3rd listen. keyboard hooks very addictive


happycow  said about 3 years ago:

Drummer is so hot.

Seriously, you should start some sort of Matt fan club. I had a friend visiting from the Gold Coast and we went to a Hats show and she wouldn't shut up about how hot he was all bloody night. And every time I click attending a Witch Hats gig on facebook she chimes in with Matt worship.


anok  said about 3 years ago:

funny that. u/a is also a gold coast native.


pleasedonot  said about 3 years ago:

This is fucking great. Can't wait for the album.


Ben  said about 3 years ago:

if I wasnt in a school full of spastics I'd ask a kid how to get around the blockage... but when I ask these kids they just smile and drool


untold/animals  said about 3 years ago:
