High Hazels‘ latest promo is for their self-titled album’s concluding dreamy track, ‘The Promenade’. The video features a girl with platinum blonde tresses traipsing around a peaceful meadow, and the echoey effects match the visuals well, as the promo itself was filmed purposely blurry. Watch it below.
