Brisbane musician Hope D has unveiled the visual for her fresh new single, Happy Hangover.
Created by the incredible Bonnie Forsyth, the stop motion animated visual features a number of surprise guests appearances from G Flip, Bridget Webb, Ruby-Jean McCabe, Bridget Brandolini, Jenna Goy, Aidan Hogg and Ainslie Dimmock. Co-written with G Flip, the conversational track sums up those inner thoughts and memories of late nights, blazing atop infectious beats and production. Alongside the release comes the announcement of Queensland tour, with three shows scheduled across the singers home state.
“I was so excited to record the video clip for ‘Happy Hangover’. It was originally going to be a really funny and whacky in-person clip, but because of COVID, I thought an animated video would be super fun! I was on the lookout for someone to make the video with limited time and I had found Bonnie Forsyth’s contact in my notes when I was scrolling through. I had met Bonnie after my Sydney EP tour show and she came up to me after the gig and told me she was an animator and gave me her details. After finding her Instagram, I knew she would be PERFECT. She absolutely nailed everything that I wanted the clip to be.” the singer shares of the visual.
Happy Hangover is the first taste of new music since the release of Hope D's debut EP, Cash Only. The EP title takes its inspiration from Hope’s tattoo artist who had the words painted on her nails at her first post-covid appointment. It is also a metaphorical play on words, tipping its hat to a period of time where every store would only accept card payments.
Happy Hangover is out now! Watch the visual below.
