Hedgehog - 'Bat'

Hedgehog - 'Bat'

Inspired by life in quarantine in a cheap hotel in Shanghai, Bat, the latest single and music video by the Beijing-based indie rock trio envisions a future in which adults are prisoners of children, who are kept in small rooms and perform repetitive tasks day after day, such as repairing and making toys for children. After an accidental blackout, the male protagonist takes the opportunity to escape, but what awaits him is a bizarre and fantastic journey. The male protagonist has been kept in the room for too long, which leads to emotional confusion and complexity. He has adapted to the life of imprisonment and is used to the mechanized and repetitive work of repairing toys. He even enjoys this work sometimes, but it is also accompanied by anxiety and emptiness.
