Singaporean instrumental rock trio hauste have dropped a video for ‘Bassball’, from their latest album ‘Patterns’.
The clip, directed by Crispin Tan, follows a young woman walking alone at the night. Wary of her safety, she stumbles and trips – and seems to open up a parallel universe, where she wears a dress knitted together of red plastic. Both iterations of our protagonist then begin to dance in unison.
Watch it below, and see if you can spot the band make a small cameo:
‘Bassball’ is the third track on hauste’s album ‘Patterns’, released on CD and Bandcamp on September 25. The record arrived on streaming services the following month.
The album, which comes two years after their debut ‘Leavings’, is the band’s first record for Japanese independent record label Friend Of Mine Records. They are the first Singaporean act on the roster, joining France’s Totorro, UK’s The Physics House Band, and tide/edit from the Philippines.
“When Friend Of Mine approached us, we knew right away that we had to work with them,” guitarist Daniel Lim told NME in September.
“We also believe that these forms of collaborative efforts with overseas labels are important as we don’t want to limit our reach to Singapore. It’s important to branch out and we felt that Friend Of Mine would be a good way to expand our music’s outreach.”
