Australian/English duo HUX release a beautifully animated video for their single “Headrush’…
Continuing to tease the project with their irresistible rhythms, the animated visuals for “Headrush” beautifully complement this slice of infectious indie-pop – you’ll be craving the summer months.
“It’s about that feeling of excitement you get in the early stages of being with someone, and being able to feel the same way over time”, the pair explain. “It was framed romantically but it’s definitely acknowledging gratitude for the people who are constants in an ever-changing world.”
Discovered by Toby Smith from Jamiroquai who started developing and recording them straight out of school, George and Pat have since been touring London’s coveted music venues, landing a support slot for Robbie Williams at Camden’s Roundhouse. The pair also came second in a national competition last year for Hoax, judged by Cenzo Townsend (Kaiser Chiefs, U2), Joe Rubel (Ed Sheeran) and Jesse Quinn (bass player for Keane).
Drawing on a vast array of influences, it was John Mayer in particular who broadened their musical horizons – allowing them to really appreciate the complexity and captivating nature of good pop music. Australian music also plays an important role in their lives, enchanted by the nostalgia from listening to the melodies of their youth.
With the full project soon to follow, “Headrush” is a candid evaluation of the importance of intimate relationships – an impressive indication of their personal storytelling.
