The Idaho psych-pop traveler Youth Lagoon released his Savage Hills Ballroom album last fall, and he’s already made videos for the songs “Highway Patrol Stun Gun” and “The Knower.” Today, he unveils his new clip for “Rotten Human,” a song that he says is about self-discovery. The artist Patrick Blades directed the video, filming it in England, and the model Daytona Williams stars. In the clip, we see Williams bumming around a stunning Icelandic landscape, and it’s already beautiful and evocative even before the video takes a turn for the surreal and psychedelic. When it gets weird, it really gets weird. I can honestly say that this video is like nothing we’ve seen before, and that’s a good thing. Check it out below.
Savage Hills Ballroom is out now on Fat Possum.
