Apollo Hill tries to forget it all in his trippy “Poison” video

Hill’s debut EP Vivid World XPRS Pt.1 is due this summer.

March 26, 2020

Orange County's Apollo Hill uses spacey guitars and a fluid approach to melody as the backdrop for a moment's escape on "Poison." The 25-year-old's laidback tune, premiering at the top of the page, is accompanied by a kaleidoscopic video in which Hills flashes his gold tooth and patterned hair while shades of blue and yellow wash over him. It's a bright and hopeful counterpoint to a song preoccupied by psychedelics and the removal of pain.
