Baltimore’s psychedelic five-piece Sun Club just released their ATO debut, The Dongo Durango, and “Worm City” is one of its singles that we premiered several weeks back. The song’s accompanying video finds the band goofing off in front of a green screen with the same wild-eyed, enthusiastic presence they share with an audience during a live performance. This is a meta, video within a video directed by Robby Rackleff, and Sun Club’s drummer Devin McCord told The 405 the following about the clip’s central concept:
We wanted to just make a crazy overstimulating green screen video and Robby (Baltimore director) who we asked to film the video has done a bunch of awesome and ridiculous stuff for Adult Swim. He used to film old funny Wham City videos and we’ve seen his standup too – so when our real good bud Max said he was his cousin we reached out and asked him to film Worm City in Shane’s old living space. We just spent one day getting real weird in front of the green screen in this warehouse place and this is the product.
The Dongo Durango is out now via ATO Records.
