Family vacations can be stressful, but Vancouver's Horsepowar has the solution: everyone needs a task. On a recent trip to India, she recruited her mom and nephew, Mehjot, to do the camerawork for her new video “Hi Everybody,” premiering today on The FADER. The track, from February's Out2Lunch EP, was produced by Boody B and hi-energy mastermind Jillionaire. Her footage has the feel of a home movie, or a flipbook of postcards from Punjab. We see the massive fields, elaborately decorated lorries, people everywhere (including a gaggle of cute kids), and glimpses from inside and outside the Golden Temple in Amritsar. It's an intimate look at life back home, and a reminder of the traditions that will never die: like acting a fool while drinking a cup of chai.
In February I went to India and it was one hell of a rang dang doodle deux. Hindustan was a chaotic, emotional, and revitalizing journey for the soul, but it was so wild to be in a future that was also stuck in the past. This video is for the warm hearts that I met in India that showed me how blessed we are.
