‘Soft dingers wearing masks fail to pick up pussies in Caulfield Park’ is a fitting description for Sophisticated Dingo‘s video for Head Talk, but nevermind, they make up for the fail with a rocking subsequent house party possibly sponsored by local beer icons VB. Or not. Whatever the case, Head Talk is a belting piece of garage-rock pumped out by the excellent two-piece, and there’s no denying lead singer/guitarist Lew Matte’s smouldering looks into the camera during the bedroom scenes add to the visual appeal of the vid.
Director Harry Anderson says, “Anytime you go out in public with cameras and latex animal masks and you aren’t arrested is a win, as far as I’m concerned! The banter on-set banter between Lew and Jimmy (Medley, drummer) had me in stitches all day, and the pineapple sniffing at the start of the video made me laugh until I cried.” Intrigued enough yet?
Recorded in Melbourne’s Salt Studios and Baked Bean Studios, produced by Thomas Keyte, and mastered by Joe Carra of Crystal Mastering (King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard, Skegss, The Peep Tempel), Head Talk sounds like a shitload of quality to WildnFree.
