Deerhoof has become one of indie-rock’s most influential bands known to date, originating as San Francisco’s own obscure indie infused rock bands. HIP Video Promo recognized these Polyvinyl Records all-stars as a groundbreaking phenomenon within the indie-rock music scene of today when we brought you their previous videos for “The Merry Barracks”, “Super Duper Rescue Heads !” and “Wrong Time Capsule”. Once again, we have something excellent to write home about, and all of which this uniquely delightful band encompasses can be witnessed in their new video “Fête D’Adieu.”

From their start in the clubs of San Francisco, they have given a new perspective to the contemporary pop-rock genre and are constantly deliverings songs that combine pop requisites and outside the box production. Their musical performances have been known to be unpredictable, difficult to explain, but yet a whole lot of fun. They have toured the world frequently supporting their impressive catalog of self-produced albums. Pitchfork labeled them “the best band in the world,” and The New York Times described them as “one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade.” Deerhoof’s rising prominence is becoming more and more, and their eclecticism, mixed with their heedless take on pop-rock music, has given them a charm that welcomes fans of every genre. Lead singer and bass player, Satomi Matsuzaki, creates a certain place for music listeners to dwell, and her fellow band mates give meaning to such easy-listening/ambient music in their latest video “Fête D’Adieu” from their new album Breakup Song.

The beginning of the video presents us with two characters that begin to dance in mystical ways. All of a sudden, a crowd appears, and they too become enchanted by the act of dancing. However, there is a certain sense of wonder and enchantment in “Fête D’Adieu” that has not yet been achieved by any other contemporary indie-rock band. As we watch these dancers, we happen upon a feeling that leads us to our own worlds, and much like those dancers, we are transformed to a place of happiness within solitude, which has been induced by the art of Deerhoof’s music. Deerhoof presents a sound that is unique and offers many meanings that help us realize that their music was made for those of us who are free in the spirit.

Deerhoof is a band that never ceases to amaze us, and they’ve done it once again! To either catch the band when they are in your market or to get your hands on a copy of Breakup Song, just drop us a line!
