ICYMI: Hands Off Gretel dropped their new music video for “Freaks Like Us’ this week. This is the fourth video release from their highly acclaimed sophomore album “I Want The World’ that we reviewed a few months ago.
The video is a visual departure from the grunge skate-punk vibe of ‘I Want the World‘ and was directed, edited, and produced by band front woman Lauren Tate.
“‘Freaks Like Us’ is an anthem for the outcasts; for those that ever feel misunderstood and alone. I really needed this song on my iPod when I was at school. The video takes me back to getting banned from performing at the school talent show, when I flipped the middle finger to the girls sat whispering and laughing at me in the audience. Writing this song for me was a way of saying ‘Just watch me’ embracing who I am and continuing to prove all that doubted me, wrong.’”Lauren Tate
