Bart’s “Yeah” Video Looks Like Windows Media Player 2.0

An altered-state guitar jam gets sent through video feedback.

With their clip for "Yeah," Toronto band Bart have found a matching visual style for their psychedelic math-pop: video feedback.

The band explained via email how the song and its visuals are linked conceptually:

"Yeah" was an exercise in leaving things to chance. We arranged moments created by a random note generator into a structure and built the song around it. In the same way, the video was mostly shot using unpredictable laser patterns as the only source of light.
