Waterparks have released the music video for “Lowkey As Hell”. Directed by the band’s frontman Awsten Knight, the video is imaginative and surrealist with comic book-like stylings and a bold color palette. In the visual, Awsten debuts a brand new look– a show-stopping multi-colored hairstyle that matches the saturated florals featured in the video.
The highly-conceptual and visually effected music video for “Lowkey As Hell” opens with the three-piece performing on flower-filled greenery, later revealing their scaled-down nature as they’re weeded out of the garden. Proceeding to track the band as they wander down a chromatic suburban scenescape and fight off adversaries, the video visually depicts the band in a pastel dream world with superheroic characteristics.
“Lowkey as Hell” is an exciting release from Waterparks. Over a glitchy bounce, Awsten confesses, “I just cried into a shirt I could never afford last year” before detailing, “Drake problems.” It builds towards a chantable refrain—“I’m high key and lowkey as hell”–backed by a rush of distortion. Reminiscent of early 2000s emo rock, the track is a deftly-crafted pop-rock anthem, with heavy-hitting drums and vibrant vocals, lyrically musing on the band’s exponential growth in popularity and its influence on their personal lives.
And can we just talk about Awsten’s hair that matches those flowers perfect??
