Today, Ha the Unclear share their brand new track Stuck In My Head from their upcoming album Invisible Lines which is due for physical and digital release on August 3rd, 2018 on Woollen Records via Rhythmethod. The album release tour is also announced today taking in five cities across the nation.
In classic Ha the Unclear fashion, this punchy new track evokes nostalgia through New Wave sound sensibilities underneath a singable chorus, jangly guitars and a propulsive bass line. Produced and engineered at Paquin Studios by Tom Healy (Paquin, Tiny Ruins, Jamie McDell), Stuck In My Head is the third single from the much-loved four piece's new record following Wallace Line and Big City.
When I wrote Stuck In My Head I’d been thinking a lot about empathy, ‘wearing someone else’s shoes’, and subjectivity. For a while, I was chewing on this particular thought about what the closest I could ever be to someone else would be, in a shared experience kind of way, and how we are alone in our own minds. At the time it was equally funny and lonely, and I had this strange sensation of being constrained by the bounds of my body so that’s what the lyric came out of - Michael CathroThe colourful music video for 'Stuck In My Head', in which the band play a children's TV presenter, a birdwatcher, a teacher, and an infantryman also features fellow Auckland musician Lou'ana Whitney as co-presenter. The video was shot in three long sequences, carefully choreographed by director Alexander Hoyles. Hugs and thanks to NZ On Air.
Made up of Dunedin musicians Michael Cathro (vocals/guitar), Ben Sargeant (drums), Paul Cathro (bass) and Theo Francis (guitar), Ha the Unclear have been charming the indie world with their off-kilter, guitar-driven pop songs that have seen them tour with Courtney Barnett, support The Shins, The Dandy Warhols and Jeffrey Lewis.
