Halasan Bazar - Space Junk

Copenhagen-based psych-pop band Halasan Bazar are set to release their latest album Space Junk on April 2nd via noted cassette label Crash Symbols.  In the lead-up to the album’s release, the band has just shared the video for fuzzed-out Space Junk-cut “Sometimes Happy, Sometimes Sad.” Lead vocalist Fredrik Eckhoff had this to say about the video:

“The footage is from “Kilka praktycznych sposobów na przedłużenie sobie życia” by Julian Antonisz, (1974), some sort of wacked children’s program, cut to pieces to reflect the agony of being a modern man. Mashing up films like this and adding new music to it has a very striking effect. What was probably just a series of gags for kids, is now morphed into a portrait of human agony and mental breakdown. But also Pythonesque slap stick comedy.”

Check out the video for “Sometimes Happy, Sometimes Sad” below, as well as some upcoming European tour dates.
