Bloomington, Indiana four-piece Hoops
have just released their first video ever for their track "Cool 2" and it is not what we expected -- but in a good way. Because their sound is lo-fi, we were naturally expecting their first video to be a VHS, Mac Demarco-esque one, but they sure fooled us with this crisp visual. It is so oddly satisfying to watch with bright white and metallic silver backdrops. One scene takes place in a dark, solid red room, but that even looks clean-cut. It's short, too, clocking in just under two minutes, but it's a perfect amount of time to show the members' personalities, with close ups of their bowl haircuts and guitars (which also somehow look clean despite the severe damage). The song is off of their Hoops
EP and if the rest of the videos look like this, it's safe to say the group is on the right track.
