VIDEO: Direct Hit! – “Hollow Comfort”
Punk rockers Direct Hit! have a new single and video out; it’s their first effort with a new five-piece lineup. It’s a song about how lonely and insignificant we feel as a result of comparing ourselves to others through the Internet; it ponders what life would be like if we just shut our virtual validation system off. The video is partially animated, done by Ben Sargent and Walker DuBois, featuring someone having a mental breakdown in front of a television playing various clips of old school sci-fi. It seems to be a sign that there’s more coming from Direct Hit! soon – stay tuned.
