Published Jul 10, 2017Calgary dream popsters Crystal Eyes release their debut LP The Female Imagination later this week, but ahead of its arrival, Exclaim! is giving you the first look at the brand new video for album cut "High Moon."
The video was produced by Evan Pearce, who collaborated with lead vocalist Erin Jenkins to create images based on shapes, colours and patterns from nature, blended with the effects of reflections, bubbles, haze, projection mapping and video feedbacking for added texture.
The clip was shot in the basement dance studio of Calgary's CommunityWise building, and Jenkins calls the location a "total gem."
"It's been serving various social causes since 1911, so it's old and has a bit of a creepy feeling to it when you're there late at night," she explains. "We spent almost 14 consecutive hours on the video, filming until almost 4 a.m., and we definitely started to feel uneasy."
The end result was worth it, though, culminating in a psychedelic swirl of kaleidoscopic imagery that perfectly complements the trippy groove of the song.
