Premiere: Maximo Park – "What Equals Love"

The alt-pop legends get handsy in their newest video.

Fresh from releasing their sixth album, Risk To Exist, late last month, Newcastle based legends, Maximo Park, are back with the latest visuals to album fave, “What Equals Love”. Full of instantly catchy guitar riffs, the track is an infectious alt-pop smash which you’ll want to get up and dance to.

The accompanying video is packed with surreal and stunning images. Blending bright colours, fascinating silhouettes and hand movements that put jazz hands to shame, it’s weird and wonderful. Speaking on the video, vocalist Paul Smith told us, “We wanted the video to be an extension of the sleeve art that Deborah Bower had created for this record. Her idea was to blend her hand-painted animation with 16mm film of disembodied hands dancing to the music. Influenced by photographers like Man Ray, the images are a surreal playful match for this exuberant, rhythmic song. A new career as a hand model awaits!”
