Bleeding Rainbow- "Drift Away"


Philadelphia's favorite shoegaze band, Bleeding Rainbow, have a new video for "Drift Away" that really exudes the fuzzy and fun aesthetic of the four piece. The video intermittently alternates between hazy, lo-fi footage of the band performing the song and delightfully creepy stop motion animation of a tortured mad scientist with what appears to be some sort of rodent's skull for a head. With his nights plagued by unattainable desires of escape and his days consisting of bleak cycles of tending to foreboding machinery, the deranged alchemist is a bit of a sympathetic character even when he bears an uncanny resemblance to something I found when dissecting an owl pellet in the fifth grade... Either way, the video is fantastic, perfectly matching the vibe of the band and the vibe of the season.
