Sydney-based alternative-rock trio RedHook have today unleashed the outrageously fun music video for their new single ‘Sentimental Surgery’.
Edited by Kim Quint (Polaris, In Hearts Wake) in portrait mode, the emo party anthem’s official visuals were created during Sydney’s 2021 COVID lockdown and star RedHook’s fans from around the world, whom they invited to take part in a global emo dress-up party from home.
Lead singer Emmy Mack explains:
“We were pretty hamstrung with what we could do for this music video, so we decided to invite our amazing community of fans to whip their phones out and get in on the fun. We hoped that, by embracing their sadboi/sadgirl roots, partying like it’s 2007 and celebrating how fun it once was be to be sad, it might help bring them some cheer and break up the monotony of lockdown. What we didn’t foresee was that watching all the fan footage back would actually bring us ridiculous amounts of joy at a time when we ourselves were really struggling.”
To coincide with the release, RedHook is keeping the community vibes pumping, announcing their ‘Bring Ya Mates’ national headlining tour for the Summer of 2022.
