Hook Release A New Music Video For Single, “Best Days”

Dublin-based new wave rock band Hook are set to release a new music video for, “Best Days,”.

Hook's latest single "Best Days" now has an accompanying music video. Shot and edited by the band. It includes slow shots of Dublin through a disorientating filter. The view is from the eyes of someone wandering the city at night; confused, lost, lonely. The band tried to compliment the song's message of going through difficult and complicated emotions.

The song features Hook’s signature 80’s new wave rock sound. With a simple guitar line and more active bass that pops out between chords, the drums are simple and almost drum-machine like.

Hook wanted to capture a sense of nervousness and foreboding. The song features harmonics, distorted sounds, panned elements, representing what’s going on is in the narrator’s head and what they are feeling. Things are confusing and unclear and their mind is clouded.

Hook are Eoin O’Donnell (vocals, guitar), Morgan O’Brien (drums) Danny Spelman (bass, vocals). The song was self-recorded in Hook’s home studio and self-produced. It was mastered by Ciaran Byrne.

Hook are a new wave rock band from Dublin, Ireland. Their sound fuses new wave with punk and grunge. Formed in early 2019 they spent the year writing, rehearsing and recording. They released their debut EP in March 2020 to positive reviews and radio play across the world. Their songs are about the small moments, the brutality of love and finding the beautiful in the simple.
