Mossy – “Electric Chair” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

MOSSY is the project of Sydney-based Jamie Timony, and he makes theatrical and hard-hitting pop music filtered through a filmy and distorted lens. “Electric Chair” is his debut single, and will be featured on his debut EP later this year — it’s an oddly soulful psychedelic track that cascades outwards, and an atmosphere that’s meditative but not too pensive. It’s built around the wondering refrain “the feeling evades me so far.” The song comes attached to a video that was directed by Kris Moyes, who has also done videos for the likes of Grizzly Bear and The Rapture, and features people artfully dancing around and laying with skeletons and staring out into the abyss as it stares back at them. Watch and listen below.

MOSSY’s self-titled debut EP is out 5/9 IOHYOU.
