If bands like Foo Fighters, Weezer, and Pearl Jam are considered the last generation of guitar-based rock, then Noiseheads are the next generation’s exception. The trio has built a devoted and passionate underground following among fans of old-school garage rock. In the process, they attracted a lot of attention from many prominent figures in the music industry, sharing line-ups with the likes of Collective Soul, Fuel, K.Flay and The Psychedelic Furs.
Primed to spearhead the “new normal” of post-pandemic rock music, the band recorded “Big Money” with Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies), an energetic new single with a blazing sax solo by Chris Spies (Marcus King Band).
We sat down with Noiseheads for an exclusive Video Voyageur, below!
Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically?
These days, songs typically get lost amongst the clutter if it doesn’t have a video. But with this being our first single back in a few years, we really wanted to make a bit of an entrance.
What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)?
The song itself rides the line between hyperbole and metaphor but is a bit whacky at face value… so we thought why not just throw the kitchen sink in visually and maximize the ridiculousness of it?
What was the process of making this video?
With regard to the song’s ethos, there was no one better for the job than the cult music video director behind Mark Gromley’s Without You, Phil Thomas Katt. He and his daughter helped film us on his green screen, and we finished in about an hour. It was an absolute blast.
