Prism Tats have released a video for single '11:11' from their latest EP of the same name; out now on Anti- Records.

The video for '11:11', the title track and the last track on the new Prism Tats EP, follows Garett van der Spek through the desolate landscape of urban Los Angeles. A visually desolate American dream that suits Prism Tats' psych post punk musings perfectly.

 

From its first grizzled chords the 11:11 EP is disgruntled, dishevelled and hugely uplifting. You'll find versatile guitars scattered throughout the mini-record, as well as the warm puff of vintage organ reeds frolicking through the bass lines. And although the subject matter might be a little jaded and downbeat (he is in LA after all), you won't be able to suppress the compulsion to dance to it all. Prism Tats' songwriting takes a predictable rock n roll cookie cutter and subverts it through unexpected melodies and psych harmonies. The whole thing is irrepressibly fun to listen to.

Who would've thought that "themes of self-inflicted isolation, working-class hopelessness, and the emotional damage of technology addiction" could be such fun?

 

“I’m superstitious about 11:11,” says van der Spek. “The song’s referencing that, and how the idea that 11:11 means something good’s about to happen is complete garbage—but maybe it’s also not, if you believe in it.”
