Higher Power's punchy, exuberant 27 Miles Underwater is one of the best albums of the 2020 so far, hands down, and one of the finest albums from a young up-and-coming band in recent memory. It's a damn shame that the U.K. melodic hardcore crew haven't had the chance to properly support the LP on the road and onstage due the COVID-19 pandemic's shutdown of the live music circuit. With their new music video, for album standout "Rewire (101)," Higher Power cast a nostalgic eye on the madness and mayhem of their last tour before quarantine. The clip is also a further throwback to the kinds of videos that inspired singer Jimmy Wizard and his cohorts to form a band in the first place.
"It's the kind of video that reminds me of why I love being in a band and touring," Wizard told The Fader, which premiered the clip today. "It's also the kind of video that would have inspired me to start a band when I was a kid, like the Limp Bizkit 'Faith' video, but sadly without the breakdancing." Watch — and flash back to a simpler, more innocent time — above.
