Guerilla Toss – “Meteorological” Video

Last year, Guerilla Toss topped themselves with GT Ultra, which landed on our list of the best albums of 2017. The New York-based psychedelic crew are back at it again with Twisted Crystal, their third new album in as many years. It’ll be out in the fall, and today they’re sharing its lead single, “Meteorological,” alongside a music video from Giraffe Studios.

The song continues the band’s trend away from the enigmatic energy of its earliest iterations and more towards the ambitious, pop-minded tunes they’ve been making as of late. “Meteorological” is an especially good one, all disorienting forward momentum and catchy hooks. Kassie Carlson adopts a lackadaisical doomsday cheerleader rhythm in the chorus, a litany of activities to do while waiting for the world to finally start making sense. “I want to be natural/ Meteorological,” she sings. If only everything was as reliably unpredictable as the weather.

The video for the track takes the form of a chaotic newscast, with Carlson playing all of the roles. Watch and listen below.
