Maximum Hedrum premiered their music video for their song “Keep In Touch” yesterday at Consequence of Sound. The track features George Clinton and is the first single from the band’s forthcoming debut self-titled album due out on Tuesday, March 19th via Spectrophonic Sound. The poignant video was co-directed by Sam Spiegel and Christopher Neil.
“The video was inspired by an article in Italian that my friend Wendy Morgan sent me about a young man with cerebral palsy and his relationship with his mom and a prostitute. The story felt closely related to ‘Keep in Touch’ in the sense of yearning for intimacy without the ability to express it with touch,” said Spiegel. “Shooting this film was a great experience in getting to know Javier Silcook (our lead actor who has cerebral palsy) and his family who are amazing (Javier has 62 adopted brothers all with disabilities as well). I hope we were able to show some of the beautiful as well as lonely moments of living with CP.”
Maximum Hedrum kicked off a live residency at Los Globos in Los Angeles last week and will appear for two additional shows on January 28th and February 4th. The band will also appear at Austin’s South By Southwest in March. Stay tuned for additional live date to be announced.
