The Soft Moon - "Insides" video

Last year, Bay Area postpunkers the Soft Moon released a tough, terse album called Zeros. And now here’s director Jacqueline Castel’s eroding black-and-white video for the brooding single “Insides.” Much of it takes place in a dark, clammy version of a primitive computer grid, like some fusion of Eraserhead and Tron. But then there’s also a part with a desert and melting doors to nowhere and a ring of fire, and I can’t come up with an ’80s cult-film comparison for that one. Dune, maybe? Watch it and download the song below.
