Hello Ocho tells a cautionary tale with ‘Tear Wagon’
Posted By Chad Radford @ChadRad on Sun, May 1, 2016 at 12:33 PM

It’s a fact: No man can resist a good sandwich. “Tear Wagon” is the latest single released from Hello Ocho’s second album, In Portuguese. The song’s visual counterpart, courtesy of Rock and Egg, offers a voyeuristic look at a night in the life of one young man who got carried away. Temptation gets the best of us all from time to time. This swift and psychedelic rocker is all about the dumb things that men do when married to an idea.

All of these elements are personified and brought to life here with full-on David Lynchian symbolism and subtlety.

“Tear Wagon” is a cautionary tale of a man who wakes up to find himself wanted bread or alive. Take heed.
