Earlier this month, we announced the return roots rockers Hoots and Hellmouth with the release of a new album, In the Trees Where I Can See The Forest. The band is self-releasing the album on October 28th, and was recorded at Dr. Dog’s Mt. Slippery studio.
The video, which premiered on Bullett Media, is shot in a forest. Sean Hoots, the frontman in the band had this to say about the soulful song:
“‘Diction’ is an old friend that’s been with me for many years at this point,” the band’s Sean Hoots explains. “Its iterations have continued to inspire while the underlying essence remains unchanged: a longing for the loss of something you very well may never have possessed.”
“The video is a masterful rendering of this sentiment by our friend and filmmaker Stavros Stavropoulos,” he goes on. “The cast, which to me includes not only the principal human actors, but the forest setting as well, orbits, collides, and spins out and away from one another. Fittingly, the song ends abruptly, unfinished, leaving us desiring a sense of completion that never comes.”
The band are playing Ardmore Music Hall on Friday, December 2nd. Go to the XPN Concert Calendar for tickets and more information about the show. Below, watch the video for “Diction.”
