POND, the Australian psychedelic rock group and occasional farm crew for Tame Impala, have launched a brand new video for his or her monitor ‘Pink Lunettes’.
Do me a favour and don’t pay an excessive amount of consideration to the lyrics. I spent hours attempting to decipher them, and once they confirmed up in useful closed caption type within the video, I used to be proper solely about 20% of the time. Nick Allbrook would inform you an identical factor.
“We kind of lurched straight outta mid-tempo into completely wired pace wobble punk so I didn’t actually have time to put in writing lyrics, simply blurt scrapbook snippets and jitter round in quick ahead,” Allbrook stated. “I feel we managed to jitter alongside the neon tightrope between completely unhinged, strobing spontaneity and centered ahead momentum.”
Jittering formally completed. Strains like “a style of chill anisette” and “it was prefer it was like aaaaaaaaa” don’t depart quite a bit to be interpreted, but it surely all serves the propellant funk groove drops and peaks like a superb disco document. Allbrook is the hype man ensuring you’re nonetheless on the dance flooring, throwing out random phrases and ululations that don’t need to imply something in any respect. So long as the beat continues to be pumping, who cares?
The accompanying video, which was more than likely filmed on my dad’s RCA camcorder from 1982 and transferred onto an already damaged VHS tape, retains the main focus solely on Allbrook, who cuts a hanging determine as a weird mixture of peak PiL-era John Lydon and peak Birthday Social gathering-era Nick Cave, flashing gentle present for each intact. However the time all the display screen squeezes into its most nauseatingly exaggerated fish-eye lens daze, you’ll be so besotted by dry mouth that you simply’ll be dashing for the backroom bar. That’s all to say that the tune, and video, are each superior.
Additionally they name the brand new video an “official visualizer” which is simply so goofy and foolish that I’m 100% into it.
