Lo-fi Texas-based artist Moth Wings has released a new music video for latest single "I Used To Hate Myself." The fast-paced, self-loathing track is accompanied by a dingy, 90's style video that vocalist Spencer Fort refers to as an "anti-video." Check it out below.
"The first time I saw a music video I thought it was distracting and overbearing," says Fort. "I never really watched them as I grew up with music. I did however slowly watch it take over the industry and become seemingly more important than the song playing underneath. When it came down to this particular song, I wanted to make sure I didn't play to the overproduced visual world we know now, and decided to strip it down to its bare bone. That's why it's as ridiculous and lo fi of a video as it is. Anything more would have just been hollow."
Moth Wings is currently on the road with Esque Records band Rome Hero Foxes, performing what Free Press Houston calls "highly energized fuzz rock." The new single is a follow-up to his EP released last summer titled Fi / M. Check out these tour dates below.
