Band & Musician News - Hell is Now Love Presents the DHDFDs' Music Video for 'Pessimist'
For the track 'Pessimist' from their debut album 'French Fries'. Filmed in true chaotic fashion around the band's spiritual home of Point Chevalier and shot on VHS tape, the video sees the band driving around their favourite local haunts. The idea was conceived while driving to the location, with the band walking around to find the perfect children's playground carrying a disturbing amount of beef bones and a pig's head.
Directed by Scott Brown and St John Migrew the video is a suitably intense visual accompaniment to their blistering music. A deranged and disordered affair, filled with nostalgic waves of static and accompanied by a song that's unrelentingly fierce; the video is a recoil against everything safe and trendy. "I didn't want to shoot in the typical HD like everyone seems to these days" says Scot Brown, "the song suits VHS, it keeps it from looking boring and flat".
