London indie-punk trio Happy Accidents have dropped a striking video for their latest track ‘Text Me When You’re Home’, which is out now.

A plaintive and honest track about cat-calling and street harassment sung from the female perspective by drummer Phoebe Cross, she says of the single:

“The song’s about the inherent threat of walking home alone at night that often comes with being a woman. There’s a constant fear of the unknown because of the fact that unwarranted interactions such as being shouted at, or worse, are all too common. I shouldn’t have to take my safety for granted, and we have a long way to go to overcome this ingrained societal misogyny.”

The video was again made by the band themselves, as guitarist Rich explains: “The idea behind it is that it’s a moving painting, made in collaboration with our friend Jono Ganz who did all the album artwork. It’s also a teaser for the stage setup of the headline tour – expect houseplants!”

The track is the latest to be revealed from their second album Everything But The Here And Now set for release on 16thFebruary 2018 via Alcopop! Records.
