Moon Duo – “Cold Fear”
Too good not to post on this one. Moon Duo have a new video out for their song “Cold Fear,” which appears on the upcoming Occult Architecture Vol. 1. The clip, animated by Micah Buzan, premiered on Adult Swim last night, which seems rather fitting given the video’s hyper-saturated animation. Buzan captures the paranoid vibes of “Cold Fear” in a short that melts your face off like an Akira sweat lodge, pulsating with darkness and paranoia. The video also has echoes of recent blurred nightmare nighttime favorites like Ugly Americans and Rick and Morty, doubling back on their own EC Comics debts. The upcoming album is one of the band’s best, so its great to see them going all in on this one – from the visuals to the high-end packaging for the proposed two albums they’re releasing this year. If, for some reason, you’ve missed out on the band to date, start here.
Also be sure to check out RSTB’s Hidden Gems interview with the band’s Ripley Johnson.
