Swallow "The Cherry Pit" with Pinkshinyultrablast’s Latest Video
Hailing all the way from St. Petersburg, Pinkshinyultrablast return with a video for their latest single ‘The Cherry Pit’ off their forthcoming LP “Grandfeathered.’
The video opens on a shot of the Edgar Allen Poe quote ‘Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?” It’s an enormously fitting line to send you off into the song. Pinkshinyultrablast, while having one of the best band names ever, have absolutely nailed the shoegaze pop sound. If Tycho was the morning, then they would be the afternoon, more awake and upbeat but still with an ethereal, dream like quality to them. But what sets this band apart is their ability to just drop the shit and ROCK. The last minute of the song really picks up the pace and makes you just want to smile and bang your head.
The video sticks to this same concept, cutting quickly between beautiful shots of what looks like the West Coast and vintage television footage. It’s composed to look like one of those dreams where you wake up and think “That was weird, what’s going on subconscious?” In this case I wouldn’t worry about it though, because this is definitely a good dream to have.
