Kacy & Clayton Are Psychedelic Homebodies In The “Strange Country” Music Video
The Saskatchewan folkies opened their third eyes at The Flaming Lips’s crib.
As breezy and amber-colored as Kacy & Clayton's new song “Strange Country” is, the Saskatchewan folk act's tune is actually about the delicious knot of anxiety that enters our stomachs when we arrive in any new place with unfamiliar customs and rituals. It's part of what makes travel feel like an adventure, but when you feel the tension twist up your guts as you cross the border, it's hard not to wish you knew the local dialect for, "Please help I'm being murdered."
The song's video starts out by mining a child-like sense of adventure, with Kacy & Clayton peeking around a house full of thingamabobs and crannies. They're actually at The WOMB, a compound belonging to The Flaming Lips in Oklahoma. That could explain why stuff gets pretty weird near the end. Here's Clayton Linthicum on how the clip got made:
Kacy & Clayton's new album Strange Country is out May 6 on New West Records.
