New Signing Hein Cooper Shares “Pretend” Video
April 9, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Australia’s singer-songwriter Hein Cooper has signed to Nettwerk Records and shares his latest single “Pretend.” The single comes with a clever and playful music video directed by Sam Brumby that features Hein and his wife and aspiring artist in her own right, Wolfe Black. Speaking about the song, Hein says, “it’s all about escaping this world. I picture two lovers getting abducted by a spaceship and heading on a journey through their craziest dreams. It’s an out-of-world experience to who knows where.”
Immense change has been at the forefront of Cooper’s life for a minute now. With his debut album The Art of Escape, Cooper has toured tirelessly, supporting James Bay and Lukas Graham. A couple of years back, the multi-instrumentalist recorded new music with producer Jarryd Shuker in Montreal, where Cooper also met his wife. Meeting the love of his life has been a transformative experience that informs his latest recordings. In addition to themes around commitment, references to Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn show Cooper’s love of classic literature. Musically, Cooper – who’s been compulsively listening to Bon Iver, Frank Ocean, RY X – has delivered songs framed in folk with a clear pop sensibility and, this time around, a bit of RnB vibe mixed into the ensemble.
