A whole lot of Peaking Lights’ album Lucifer was inspired by their newborn baby boy, but nowhere did it manifest itself more than in "Beautiful Son." "Beautiful Dub"—literally the dub version of that song is filled with all sorts of extra synth squiggles and calming rhythm. That, paired with the footage, which is all vintage surfing material, edited and refracted on itself courtesy of director Mike Seely, starts to feel less like a psychedlic, echoed-out take on the original and more like a video for their son to take comfort in. Watching it as a full grown adult is calming, too, in case you were wondering. Lucifer in Dub is out right now on Mexican Summer.
