clash music.com has premiered the video for Virgin, which was directed by NME Video of the Year winner Sam Alder, and Eric Kiel.
Here’s what they had to say:
“High School can be a helluva tough time.
Yet, as testing as it can be, High School can also supply grist for the creative mill – something to kick against, in other words.
Hailing from South Carolina, HeyRocco are clearly aware of this. New single ‘Virgin’ is set in high school, with its corrosive mixture of The Cure and Mudhoney conjuring up all manner of adolescent fury.
Out now as a free download, ‘Virgin’ has a darkly nostalgic vibe – worthy of, say, Radiohead’s much neglected ‘Pablo Honey’ full length.
Given the visual treatment, the video for ‘Virgin’ only enhances these themes.”
