Lament, Dance, & Daydream to The Hairs' 'That Witch'

Brooklyn's lo-fi indie pop band, The Hairs, are single again, and they're not happy about it.

The Hairs' "That Witch" is an upbeat lament of lovers lost, tinged with anger and the underlying hope that maybe, just maybe, that asshole will come back. It's a catchy, psychedelic song and video you can't help but dance to--that is, if you manage to tear your eyes from the kaleidoscope of colors while frontman Kevin Alvir strums his guitar and writhes on the floor.

Led by Alvir and joined by Jacob Sloan and Steve Tarkington, The Hairs have been described by Stereogum as "a twee Wavves, a less punked-up/still snotty Cloud Nothings, an extremely polite Happy Flowers." Their sporadic subject matter includes everything from breakups to dying houseplants to barbarians to crippling anxiety, always infused with a warm, soft-rock sensibility that hearkens to golden musical decades of the past.

The colorful, weird video, which is reminiscent of a highly successful experience with a MacBook Photo Booth, is directed by The Drums' Jacob Graham.

The Hairs' newest album, While I Hated Life, Barbarian, can be streamed on BandCamp. Watch the "That Witch" below:
