Fists - Stag

23 September 11 words: Paul Klotschkow
One of Nottingham's most exciting bands unleash their latest music video on the world. Warning: contains explicit use of poppers.

Fists are one of those rare bands who are hard to pigeonhole; their influences range from 50s country, scuzzy 60s garage rock through to 90s lo-fi. Their unique and idiosyncratic approach has seen them championed by BBC 6 Music and Steve Lamaq, appear on Rough Trade's celebrated 'Counter Culture' compilation and perform an in-store at their shop in East London, as well as play numerous gigs and festivals up and down the country including being handpicked to play Glastonbury Festival.

Above is the band's latest video for the song Stag and was put together by the visual artist, Joseph Hallam. As James from Fists explains, "It took a total of 1700 party poppers and a couple of months worth of work which saw Joe trying to figure out the best way to pop as many of the damned things as he could in one go whilst filming it in the slowest of motions all on a shoestring budget. No mean feat I tell ya and a totally sweet result!"

You can download Stag in various digital formats or you can buy the Ascending/Stag 7" direct from Hello Thor.
