Fiddlehead's powerful sophomore full-length, Between The Richness, is out now from Run For Cover Records, and it's been met with praise from fans and critics alike—including recently landing at #1 on Stereogum's 'Best Albums of 2021 So Far' list. Today the band are sharing their new music video for album standout, "Down University," and announcing U.S. tour dates scheduled for September.
The "Down University" video was directed by guitarist Alex Henery who aimed to reflect vocalist Pat Flynn's empathetic lyrics. Henery discussed the video, saying: "I wanted to capture the feeling that Pat sings about when referring to the stress and weight of degrees, studying, grades and how that can be a physical burden at times. The work and effort of school is something to be proud of, you don’t have to carry the stigma and stress but instead can build something with your experiences and the lessons you’ve learnt. When I told Pat the idea, he laughed and told me, 'on the last day at Brown I did actually have a stack of books up to my chin, that I was lugging through campus.' I think that sealed the deal that I had to make this video."
