Sure, it’s only a month until Christmas, but you can at least pretend it’s summer again for the next three minutes thanks to ‘Herside Story’, the latest from Irish hip-hop trio Hare Squead. They say they wrote it “for the love doers in this cold cold season”, and that’s a pretty perfect billing, really. The double-vision video debuted on Friday, seeing the three of them dancing amid a load of ferns in a toasty-warm greenhouse. Brilliant.
The trio recently said they don’t really feel like they need to leave Dublin – “but at the same time,” they went on, “we don’t just want to be a local act. We want to be international as fuck.” Actually, ‘international as fuck’ isn’t inaccurate: following a sellout show at Dublin’s Button Factory back in September, they’ve just completed a streak of brilliant autumn shows supporting Dua Lipa on her European tour. Whatever’s next, we’ll be watching.
