Black Moth Super Rainbow feels like music we intercepted from an alternate dimension. It’s warm and simultaneously cold; it’s futuristic but also feels very retro, songs rooted in human nature but ultimately seeming completely alien. The band’s new video for “Hairspray Heart,” off last years critically acclaimed Cobra Juicy, shows us a glimpse of a place that feels like the dimension in which Black Moth Super Rainbow’s sound has emerged from. It’s fascinating and we definitely want to know more about these strange visitors...
From the minute it kicks in, the video feels as if your television transmission is being hijacked. The Black Moth Super Rainbow logo flies out at you and you’re introduced to an androgynous character in, what appears to be, some kind of night club. Once the camera zooms in and we get a closer look it becomes clear that this character is in a hot tub, not a disco. Hot tubs for discos, what a silly mistake to make!
Black Moth Super Rainbow is also planning to tour in support of Cobra Juicy, available now on Rad Cult, reaching new cities they have not played until this year. If the video leaves you curious and wanting to know more check out a live show near you.
