Here We Go Magic released a new video for their new single 'How Do I Know' this week along with a full stream of their latest album 'A Different Ship'. The video also appears ahead of the band's first UK shows in two years, starting 4th May in Brighton (full details below).
Directed by Sean Pecknold (Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Grizzly Bear) the video stars Janet Pants as a happy-go-lucky dancing robot who is being returned to the factory by her owner. Pecknold explains, "It takes place in the not-so-distant future where you will be able to custom order human like robots for your pleasure, and although some people will probably still be partial to the human flesh, I think some conflicts of emotion will arise. Humans, love, sex, technology, dancing, the future!"
HWGM will also be touring the US later in May with indie-pop outfit Hospitality. The full run of shows include stops at Sasquatch, London's Field Day, Reading and Leeds Festival and Bonnaroo. The list of European dates are below,
