British Columbia trio Freak Heat Waves recently released their new album, Bonnie's State of Mind, and it's full of the type of nervy art rock that used to play in clubs in the '70s but today is primarily reserved for boozy basements and college dive bars. Just like the album art (below), the video for head-spinning single "Dig a Hole" is a collage of sorts, stitching together some static-y VHS footage. "The video functions as a visual counterpart to the recording by offering a barrage of fragmented and discordant imagery," the band—who made the video themselves—told FADER over email. "It preserves the mystifying and abstract essence of Bonnie's State of Mind." The album is out now on Hockey Dad Records.
