Ben Kweller just released his first song in a long time, “Heart Attack Kid,” and made it into a cool, new video. One with lots of snakes. Check it out!
“Making the ‘Heart Attack Kid’ music video with Ben Kweller was the first big project I’ve done outside of my band, Superorganism,” says Robert Strange, who helped with the video, via a press release. “Stylistically, I wanted to take a step in a new direction while making the video true to who Ben is and the world he lives in. Ben shot the live action stuff on his ranch in Texas, and I meshed that together with the story of a claymation rattlesnake who hears ‘Heart Attack Kid’ floating on the breeze and sets off on a mission to find the source. It was great collaborating with Ben; he’s got so much energy and has a really special thing going on at his label The Noise Company. We were chatting pretty much every day, passing ideas back and forth and fine-tuning the video. I learned a lot making this video, and together we ended up making a piece of art that I’ll always be extremely proud of.”
Catch Ben on tour soon.
