Aotearoa all-stars Dateline today share the final single from their upcoming debut album Dumb For My Age, out on 27th August via Sunreturn, plus a video directed by Olivia McClymont. The talented foursome of songwriter Katie EveringhamCallum Devlin (Hans Pucket — that's two releases in one day!), Priya Sami (BUB) and Ruby Walsh (Lips) feature in the new clip, with a cameo from Annabel Kean (Sports Team and recent UTR Assistant editor).

Recorded by Callum Passells (also of Hans Pucket), the visuals for 'Love Hertz' show the band in a doctor’s waiting room, where Everingham’s pining for the healing touch of an alluring doctor (Geo Bidois) becomes extreme (and extremely relatable). The grungy pop-infused distortion electrifies Everingham’s delicate vocals and attentive lyrics in a suitably fuzzy blur of infatuation…

"I think I was just being a bit moody when I wrote this... It's me kind of complaining while acknowledging that actually life and love is good and I wouldn't change anything, but I may just go "humph" from time to time." — Katie Everingham

"Love Hertz was an extraordinarily fun music video to make... the premise for the Love Hertz is a bit literal! It’s about how far you’ll go to be with your ‘true’ love… even if that love isn't reciprocated. Sometimes love truly hurts! Perhaps this is a bit of a warning to anyone who might think otherwise? Self-love before all other kinds of people!

In the video, Katie figures the only way she can be with the Doctor she’s enamoured with is if she has legitimate reasons to go to the hospital… but is it all worth it in the end? (short answer - no, haha)."" — Olivia McClymont

'Love Hertz' is out today on major streaming services via Sunreturn.
