Acclaimed by the likes of Evening Standard, The Line of Best Fit, Clash and Spindle, American trio half·alive have come a long way since the release of debut album ‘Now, Not Yet‘ in 2019.
Their new and emotive single ‘Hot Tea’ continues to showcase the outfit’s refreshingly alternative approach to indie-pop, and sets the tone for the first part of their upcoming album ‘Give Me Your Shoulders, (Pt. 1)’, out in February 2022.
“‘Hot Tea’ is a deep longing to be touched by life. A desperate desire to love someone with sacred, caring hands & be loved in return by people & God & her creation. We shot this video on tour, representing that desperate longing with plastic- a material that is nearly invisible, yet air tight. That was the feeling for me at least. Plastic is a thin filament that prevents pure exposure to the raw ingredients of life. An artificial, translucent barrier to the heart that i will claw at until there is nothing left.”
