Watch: Art d’Ecco shares colourful video for new glam-rock track ‘Head Rush’

Concept album 'In Standard Definition' drops on April 23

Art d’Ecco is set to release Standard Definition on April 23rd, and today the art rocker has shared a colourful video for “Head Rush.”

The Vancouver artist is staying true to a stomping glam-rock sound, with an electrifying guitar solo, a powerful horn section, and some stunning retro vocals. The accompanying clip sees Art d’Ecco and co. delivering an energetic performance beneath colourful lights, with layered editing effects that feel reminiscent of classic rock music videos.

“It’s a song about the head rush of our youth – nostalgia is a powerful drug, it distorts and reframes the past, often reconciling our memories into one place for easy access and to better suit our current disposition or state of mind,” Art d’Ecco explains of the track. “I wanted all the hallmarks of a classic rock song – the kind of music that used to blast from the kitchen radio at the summer jobs I’d worked at as a teen.”
