HILLTOP HOODS have today released a brand new single and also unveiled the video for ‘1955’ FT. Montaigne & Tom Thum Premiering on Triple J breakfast this morning, Mc Suffa says ‘1955’s about living in a small town, a place where things don’t change too much. I called it 1955 because sometimes living in a small town is like living in a different era. I actually love small town life, obviously it has its drawbacks, but I really enjoy the simplicity and being part of a community.’ On working with Triple J unearthed artist singer /songwriter Montaigne, and beatboxer Tom Thum he says ‘I loved working with Montaigne and Tom. Montaigne has such an amazing natural gift and a great energy. When you watch her record you can tell that she’s going to have such a big life. Obviously Tom is incredibly gifted too. He can rhyme, produce, beatbox, b-boy, paint… To tell the truth, he’s so talented that sometimes it’s actually kind of frustrating being friends with him.’ Teaming up again with director  Rich Coburn, the video for ‘1955’ is about Little men from Mars fire rage-inducing lasers at a humble fifties diner. You know, that old chestnut’ Rich Coburn says “This clip plays around with the wholesome image of the 1950s that exists in our minds. Set in a diner, it’s a world where everything is perfect and the people polite and happy. However, we see this through the eyes of an outsider. A young girl sits observing everything and it’s through her eyes that we see beneath the surface things are not what they seem. As the radio talks of Flying Discs in the sky, it’s almost like our “Visitor” has a capacity to reveal the repressed emotions within our perfect world inhabitants until all those pent up emotions explode.”
