The Holydrug Couple’s “Dreamy” Video Lives Up To Its Name
The song’s off the Chilean psych duo’s new album, Moonlust.
The Holydrug Couple's new full-length was self-recorded in Chile, probably someplace beautiful. It was mixed up here, in New York, by Uniform guitarist Ben Greenberg, whose ear for tortured textures feels suited for the duo's homemade psych-pop, which sounds melodic and meditative but rarely ever "sunny." The new video for "Dreamy"—which follows a memory-haunted man from a rain-soaked street to the edge of a cliff by the sea—nails that vibe, too. "This is my first attempt taking the visual imagery of Holydrug and transforming it into moving images," band member Manuuel told FADER over email. "This video speaks about what I feel for the song: being asleep, staring at your dream, deciding if you want to awake or not." The new record, Moonlust, is out May 12th via Sacred Bones, and the band's U.S. tour starts this week at Austin Psych Fest.
