Hailing from Sheffield, High Hazels are a new band to keep an eye on in 2014, and have today premiered the new video for their single 'Summer Rain' on Gigwise. Check it out below.
The video is a nice back to basics introduction to the band that focuses on instruments and profiles in order to draw distinct attention to simple but effective and oh-so-charming track
Remniscient of The Smiths, the band are clearly aware of their Northern musical heritage and it is reflected in both the sound and the songwriting. It harkens back to a more nostalgic time in music without getting bogged down in unoriginal trappings. Instead it sounds like a fresh revival.
