The Omaha electro-pop trio Icky Blossoms will release their debut album next week. We offer you the video for their first single, "Perfect Vision," which has a compelling, almost David Lynchian feel to it.
Over at Stereogum, where the video premiered on Thursday, the band notes:
We were dealing with a 6 1/2 minute long song. We had to keep things interesting. So it made the most sense for us to direct a short film and approach the video as such. We wanted the quality of it to be that of any film you would see in theaters. Coming from a film background, that is just the way we like to work.
We want the world we create to feel genuine and not thrown together. It is thought out and organized. The world you watch on the screen is as real as what is outside your window, or within your mind. Each of our music videos exist within the same universe. Reoccurring characters, places and ideas. We’ve been creating this world in our heads as we write Icky Blossoms’ music and now it is just a matter of manifesting that world visually. Part of the fun of living in reality as humans, is manifesting new realities that have never existed before. “Perfect Vision” is an example of that manifestation. A new universe from our imaginations and into yours.
The album can be streamed here.
