Published Aug 05, 2014There's rarely a moment's rest during a live set from PMA dance-pop prince Rich Aucoin, and he's likewise keeping things bug-eyed and energetic in the new video clip for his next Ephemeral single, "Yelling in Sleep."
The wildly animated clip focuses on a happy-go-lucky, hirsute tree planter partying hard with the spirit of mother nature and a woodland team of flapjack munchers, until the sting of city life tries to creep its way onto the land. It's a battle between skyscrapers and saplings, the breeze in the trees versus the cold, static shape of an apartment building. Via a Street Fighter-saluting two-person battle between our woodsman and the embodiment of modern day society, you'll discover who takes claim of the land down below.
Aucoin has announced an additional string of fall dates supporting his Ephemeral, which lands September 9 through Bonsound. You can see the tour info just above the video.
