Where the original Soundgarden track wielded the gritty, sludge-laden tones akin to Crowbar and Melvins, One Hundred Moons takes a daring leap, weaving synths so sinister they border on the satirical. That is until Jen Vella’s dulcet vocals enter the fray, steering the track from its grunge roots into a mesmerizing hybrid that channels the spirit of Portishead and Beach House. It’s in this audacious pivot that the true genius of One Hundred Moons shines brightest, marking their “4th of July” as a transformative journey from bygone rock to a shoegaze dream pop soundscape — one that’s entirely their own.

This music video is more than a visual accompaniment; it’s a declaration of One Hundred Moons’ ability to reinterpret, reinvent, and resurrect the quintessence of the ’90s for a new era. Prepare to be captivated by a video that’s as much a feast for the eyes as the song is for the ears, solidifying One Hundred Moons’ place as trailblazers in the contemporary music scene.

“4th of July” is only available on SoundCloud for now – expect it and the second, soon-to-be revealed single that will complete the EP to be made available on all streaming platforms on April 4th, 2024.
