Boris – “Vanilla” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
On their upcoming Noise Boris revisit the riff-happy psych-metal of older releases like Pink and Akuma No Uta. That return to heaviness was apparent as soon as you hit play on the seven minute single “Quicksilver,” but even though “Vanilla” is a shorter song, it delivers even more with this video. The clip shows the band playing through clouds of smoke and flashing lights, letting you savor every sweet double-neck guitar solo, cymbal crash, and bad-ass stare into the camera. It’s a blast. Watch below and check them out on tour.
