Hands Like Houses Premiere Unsettling Music Video For “A Tale Of Outer Suburbia”

'Unimagine' out now on Rise Records

Hands Like Houses 2014 Promo

Hands Like Houses released Unimagine a year ago this July on Rise Records, but today we get a eyeful of the visuals for the band’s single “A Tale Of Outer Suburbia.”

A far stride from your normal music video, this one features a near-silent breakdown by a suburban housewife amidst an apocalypse of bubbles. It takes the passionate lyricism of the Australian 6 piece and drives it home with an artistic performance.

“We have been waiting quite a while to be able to work on a clip with Josh,” says bassist Matthew Cooper, “He’s an amazing director that we grew up with in Australia and someone that we knew we could create something a little outside of the box with. It’s always interesting approaching video clips with the intention of creating something unique and captivating, separate from the song though as well as complimentary. We absolutely love the final product and it’s definitely one of the coolest projects we’ve been part of.“
