HIP Picks- The Weekly Client Roundup- Thursday 9/7

It’s an exciting time here at HIP HQ. We’re partnering with some long-time friends of HIP and working with artists we’ve been fans of for years; and we’re also bringing you some promising new artists that we think you’ll love. The newest weekly client roundup video gives the low-down on some of our current projects, and we’ll tell you a little bit about each one below.

As indie rockers, the HIP Video Promo crew have been fans of The National for many years, so needless to say we’re thrilled to be promoting the band’s new video for “Day I Die.” The song comes from their brand new album Sleep Well Beast, out today via 4AD. The “Day I Die” video is filmed as a time lapse, with various filters and flashes of color to make a mesmerizing clip.

Mike Flannery has been a friend of HIP Video Promo for many years, and it’s a pleasure to be promoting the Mr. Flannery and His Feelings video for “Pushing Up.” With their album Try Your Hardest, Mr. Flannery and His Feelings dive in to the intricacies and subtleties of emotion. The “Pushing Up” clip sees Mr. Flannery celebrating the small things and the most mundane parts of life, as he enjoys a beautiful- if ordinary- day.

For decades, New York City has been home to a plethora of promising punk rockers, and World War IX is the city’s latest export. Coming as the follow-up to “Have You Seen My Drugs”, “Thank God It’s Monday” is a tongue-in-cheek romp through corporate drudgery (does anyone actually look forward to Monday mornings?). Don’t worry though; the clip is more humorous than cynical.

Earlier this summer, we brought you Sarah Ragsdale‘s clip for “This Kiss”, the first from her upcoming album Whimsical Romance. Now, we’re pleased to be bringing you “Ferris Wheel”, which again shows her playful and romantic nature as she floats around an amusement park. It’s old-timey and truly delightful; something sure to please music listeners of all ages.

In a time when the world is full of negativity, an artist with a positive world view and infectious energy is something we all need. From the Cayman Islands to his current home in London, Stuart Wilson has the potential to be that vision of optimism. With “Real Come Back Story”, he’s here to tell anyone who’s doubted him that you can’t keep a good man down. It’s a reminder to keep your head up when times are tough, because you never know when things will start looking up.
