Texan grunge/alt-rock outfit Narrow Head have revealed their brand-new video for single, “Hard To Swallow,” taken from their hugely acclaimed sophomore album, 12th House Rock, out now via Run For Cover Records.
On the video for “Hard To Swallow,” vocalist Jacob Duarte states:
“We shot the video in the middle of nowhere Texas at this insane house that was rundown but still livable, courtesy of the Allison Brothers. Kinda like a house from a horror movie [like] Texas Chainsaw or House of 1000’s Corpses.
“The house was surrounded with trees and a couple of acres of land with no cell phone service so you’re totally isolated. Gives you this creepy feeling like someone could be watching. The first time I visited the spot I knew I wanted to do a video there, it came out exactly how I imagined it.”
Rising from the Texas underground/DIY scene, Narrow Head quickly amassed a devoted following for their standout live performances and open-hearted, emotionally naked songwriting.
12th House Rock, the group’s sophomore LP and Run for Cover debut, serves as a distillation of the greatest moments in ’90s alt-rock and grunge. Narrow Head’s wall of riffs add stark contrast to their deceptively sweet pop melodies.
Delving into deep-seated themes of self-loathing, desolation, self-medication, the loss of loved ones and hopeful redemption, 12th House Rock is a rock-focused LP themed on transition, exploring the vast abyss of darkness just before the sun cracks upon the horizon.
