PREMIERE: Bad Bangs navigate the mundanity of post-breakup life in their new clip Hearts

We’ve all been there… that worthless period after a break-up when everything is shit and you’re overcome by an inescapable feeling of loneliness.

In their new video for Hearts, Melbourne three-piece Bad Bangs navigate these times – not overtly depicting this feeling of despair, but rather the mundane routines and activities we undertake in an attempt to avoid it.

Featuring an all-female cast, Hearts follows four separate characters and explores their individual ways of coping; ranging from grocery shopping to jogging, or attending the movies alone.

Bad Bangs’ new video for Hearts is a breakup song for those who are quiet on the outside; keeping it together while emotions run wild.

Throughout the video, each character encounters zero social interaction – swathing the video in themes of isolation. The song itself is a scuzzy and vividly empathetic piece of garage-rock that feels like walking a tightrope; a balance between heartbreak and moving forward.

Bad Bangs are made up of Shelby De Fazio on vocals and guitar, Ben Leahy on bass, and Monica Ireland on drums.

I swear I’ll never feel the same/I’m so sick of these games,” De Fazio sings. The song always maintains a feeling of keeping-it-together, while something far more emotive boils beneath.

Bad Bangs navigate these times in a way that’s relatable and empathetic on Hearts – it makes for a truly endearing listen. Make sure you check out the video above, and suss out live dates below:

Monday March 26th – Old Bar – Fitzroy, Victoria – Supporting Chastity Belt (USA) – $15 on the door.
