NYC-based, New Zealand-bred Rock artist Miriam Clancy has released a second single from her upcoming album Black Heart, “Head Like A Hole,” examining “our digital codependency”. Black Heart is due to arrive on January 20th, 2023 and Clancy has some upcoming shows starting tonight, November 17th, 2022, in New York at Pianos.
Miriam Clancy comments on the digital codependency highlighted in the new track:
How can we hate this? The great library in the sky! But it’s so good though! We are entranced yet anxious targets zooming around the internet and it’s beautiful and connected, addictive and thrilling! I love it, can’t look away. At the same time, it’s a great vacuum of space that our cyber-dimensional lives are making in our minds, constantly claiming more real estate till we have no room left to recalibrate and regulate – only react.
Filmed by Winger Brothers, and edited by Miriam Clancy, the video for “Head Like A Hole” drew on inspiration from old Split Enz videos, Donnie Darko, and David Lynch’s Lady In The Radiator, with a little Logan’s Run thrown in for good measure.
Clancy adds about the video:
We would have looked bonkers, but it was one of my fave ever video shoots – Skateboarding isn’t work, it’s alive and awesome. Ride or die! Unless I break my guitar hand, then I’m burning that thing.
