Hong Kong emo/indie rock band Wellsaid have released a music video for the track Rest My Head featured on their brand new album Apart. The album is available on cassette, vinyl and digital formats.
Vocalist/guitarist Rocky sent in the following information regarding the video:
“Teeda (the director) and I were think about shooting a story – involving angry people, young and old. But we never got around to coming up with a good story.
In February Teeda suggested we revisit the places where I used to play music – and we shot inside four or five industrial buildings and the Kwun Tong seafront.
The sights of closed doors and dated elevators were more than familiar, but the noises that filled these rooms had faded. I thought about the faces of some old friends, but three minutes wasn’t enough to tell their stories.
The road where we shot the skateboarding scenes connects my home to the nearest train station. The smooth pavement had only been there a few years ago.
On many nights I walked the same path with an instrument on my back, while a maintenance train passed by quietly.
The sound playing in my earphones were etched into my head as I walked, and they were turned into new music later that day.
The skateboarding wasn’t really about skateboarding, it is just another thing that I am not good at.
The falling was not really about falling too, but I thought I could take a few more hits.
May the noise be with you, we’ll see you on the road.”
Here’s to hoping that more bands from Hong Kong start traveling in non-Chinese speaking regions around Asia to get more experience and continue to develop their already amazing music.
