Weymouth punk band Weatherstate have dropped an extra-terrestrial themed visual for their latest single Hangar. Directed by Ben Pollard, the music video features cut in scenes associated with space travel, with shots of the band preparing for their own space adventure.
"When we had started shaping up the original demo ideas for "Hangar" in the spring of last year, I was bouncing riffs off of our long-time video director and pal Ben Pollard,” says guitarist Callan Milward. “Whilst we had no initial plans in place for music videos at that time, his initial vibe on the track kept coming back to thoughts about outer space, which ended up snowballing into something much greater. It's safe to say this is perhaps the start of what's to come and we can't wait to drip feed our barmy world into everyone. Thanks to everyone who's joined the initiative so far.”
The track is driven by the dramatic events of 2020 and is clearly just as relevant today as it was when it was written. Vocalist and guitarist Harry Hoskins says “The track is about a phone call to a friend last summer, about how f*cked everything is. Growing numb and bitter towards everything and everyone, but also learning to find peace within our own individual coping mechanisms. Understanding that sometimes a crutch is needed to stay sane, whether that be self-destructive, or progressive through the helping hand of a friend.”
