Straight Arrows bring you a real BAD TRIP - euphoria meets terror on their longest and loudest song to date.
'Buried Again' is the latest single to be taken from the Straight Arrows' new album ON TOP - out NOW on Rice Is Nice Records.
Directed by consummate recluse, photographer Mclean Stevenson, this hypnotic clip is proudly premiered via RUSSH! Equally inspired by nights at long-departed Sydney kitsch/exotica club The Sounds of Seduction, urban psychedelics, and Jesco White the Dancing Outlaw.
Says Mclean: "I think I was high and I listened to the song and I thought 'this would suit an urban cowboy psych type thing, I'll use my little camcorder' and then I called Owen and he was into it and said he would grow a moustache. I remember I wanted to have a scene where Owen got electrocuted on a dance machine at timezone, but it got cut for some reason.”
'Buried Again' is embarrassingly the longest and most complex Straight Arrows song, featuring FIVE chords and counting in at a CLOCK DESTROYING 4 minutes. Brooding, hypnotic, smouldering and near-metronomic, climaxing in a squall of white-hot noise and feedback with an actually EXPENSIVE AMPLIFIER MELTING solo to send it away.
Watch Straight Arrows' Owen Penglis dance through a really HEAVY trip and be sure to catch the band on their upcoming 'Buried Again' tour this March.
