Banjo Or Freakout, aka psychedelic bedroom popmaker Alesso Natalizia, has woven so many watery layers, laps, and flows into “Upside Down” that it would’ve been surprising if this Blake Salzman-directed video didn’t take place by some sandy waves. The clip begins with still shots of an axe, a teddy bear, shells, etc. But as the Londoner sings at the start of the track, it’s “the middle of summer,” so after the trippy intro we get a bunch of folks in costumes running slo-mo into the ocean until a girl turns around and shifts the camera’s focus. Dreamy on a number of levels.
The “Upside Down” 12″ is out via Half Machine.
