Video Vixens: Young Prisms

We've all seen them, videos that either don't go with the song they're a clip for, or are so bad you can't pay attention to the song in question. Thankfully, this is not the case with the new promo from my beloved San Fran psychgazers Young Prisms.

For new jam "Midnight's When," the band shows off both the song and a video that lets the song do the work while creating an atmosphere that all the while contributes to the overall effect. The simple tricks of slow-motion running through fog and tight shots of the band playing with fog machine in overdrive don't overwhelm the song, itself a lovely, laconic effort full of the masterful nouveau gaze tipsy with psych that we all know and love. Well played indeed.

PS: The band will be spending plenty of time on the road over the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled for dates.
