Radical Face, "Hard of Hearing" - "I know I'm not well, but I'm all right," sings Ben Cooper of Radical Face in his recent single. "Hard of Hearing" centers on feeling stuck when all you want to do is move forward. It puts the saying, "easier said than done," into a soft and sweet melody that mixes folk and indie electronic. While tender in tone, it remains utterly self-aware of how long the road to personal growth can become-even when it seems like you have all the steps figured out. Cooper combines this agony with a touch of self-deprecating humor for the music video, channeling a Wes Anderson aesthetic to add a hint of pleasure to a painfully personal experience.
