Rising Scottish pop punk band Woes have released the new music video for their current single, “HLB2”. The video features the band members as talent show judges and can be viewed below. The track, which is a homage to Drake’s megahit “Hotline Bling”, is off of the band’s EP Self Help released last week via UNFD.
“‘HLB2’ captures the things that we feel represent the band perfectly – it’s fun, laid back and hopefully makes you laugh!” says frontman David “DJ” Jess. “In the video, we search long and hard to find the best new talent… and it turns out to be us. Although there’s one star of the show that definitely deserved it more!”
“Any song that you write is a cathartic human process of something that’s happened to you or an expression of hurt or an expression of love, and for me any song that I write is self-help”, states DJ. With prolific producer Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, WSTR) at their disposal, they did what they do best: worked hard. “We wanted to write songs that sounded unique. We made a conscious decision to write distinctive sounding songs, we would only work on a piece of music if it made you feel something. And it’s our best work yet! As we were writing these songs our band was growing and growing, and we anticipated that we were writing songs that we were going to be playing in HUGE venues. We’ve never really had to write music with the expatiation of having to play it to thousands of people before. So that changed the dynamic of how we structured songs quite significantly.”
