Ski Lodge drops another single off their upcoming album Big Heart in a dreamscape turned twisted and dark video. The latest is "Boy" which sees the band hanging out in front of a 7-11 doing the normal boy things like sucking down mega slurpees and savoring corn dogs on an easy summer day. This idyllic image of boyhood Americana grows dark when an incandescent trio of rings lights Andrew Marr's head, as if a halo, before the slurpees turn to something chemical in an industrial sci-fi war zone featuring bully-type dudes in a pick up truck.
Watch and see how a boy's sweet summer dream - clouds, lassos and that beautiful girl too- continues into the present. A young man finds himself face-to-face with the beautiful girl of his nostalgia by a campfire. I can't give away the rest, it's too sweet and dark and startling to take away from your own first view.
Ski Lodge's premiere LP Big Heart is out August 20th on Dovecote Records.
