Brisbane native Hazlett has unveiled his video for “Suncats,” a song that was named after a Swedish idiom that helped him get over his breakup depression. The video follows the ups, downs, and deterioration of romance that consumes you even after it has ended. Breakups are tough, but they make the best music video storylines:

Describing the influence behind the single, Hazlett commented:

“I was lying on the floor of the studio sulking and strumming my guitar. The sun was reflecting off it and dancing along the wall when my Swedish friend pointed to the reflections and said ‘what do you call those in English?’ I said we didn’t really have a word for something like that. He explained in Sweden you call them ‘Solkatter’ which directly translates to ‘Suncats’. That word flipped the switch for me. It took something so simple or unnoticeable and made it poetic. It was like a metaphor that snapped me out of my cliché post break-up depression. Find a little beauty in the mundane and even a little good in the bad. If you do that nothing is ever a waste of time.”

The track is from Hazlet’s latest EP Thundering Hopes, which is was released back in July 1st. Check it out:
