The Underachievers – “Chasing Faith” x “Rain Dance” x “Allusions” Video
At its heart, Hunter S. Thompson’s 1971 non-fiction work Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas is a pointed critique of the mythology of the American Dream, but that deeper meaning is easily obstructed by the copious amounts of substances he consumes throughout. The threatening desert sprawl of Las Vegas morphs into a surreal, mostly creepy technicolor waking dream, one that the Underachievers imitate well in their new video for three songs off of their forthcoming album Evermore: The Art of Duality: “Chasing Faith,’ “Rain Dance,” and “Allusions.” The duo drive through the desert on the outskirts of Vegas in a bright pink Cadillac, not dissimilar to the one that Ralph Steadman illustrated for the first scene of Thompson’s book. Their savage journey begins with a hit of acid and doesn’t let up until all three songs are over; watch the YASHXANA-directed video below.
