A gracious addition to the psychedelic rock scene, Brooklyn-based quartet Sun Abduction are bound for a west coast tour in anticipation of their recently released singles, “Acid Pyramid / Pale Rider”, as well as prepping for their upcoming debut LP. Directed by Robert Hickerman, their music video for “Acid Pyramid” offers a glimpse of the track’s foreboding doom through a bystander’s view of far-off window panes and the quick flickering of neon-hued lighting within the mysterious room. Without pause, the track pulsates with visions of agitated and idly pacing blood-soaked Converse sneakers amidst a kaleidoscopic wash of reds and oranges, shifting between hazy lo-fi shots of the band and gradually ascending in its intensity of psychotic visions. Tending to assert its significance to attaining a morally high point of development, the manually represented pyramids in this case depict the shape’s triangular apex as a mental and spiritual collapse which eventually leads to a literal and physical disembodiment of the self.
