L.A.’s Mystic Braves have a new video for the ode-to-the-road title track from last year’s The Great Unknown album, and it’s the psychedelic excursion you’d hope for and more. “The Great Unknown” is a pop-garage song about how the journey is the destination, and that must be why this video has such irresistible momentum. Created by Mystic Braves’ Ignacio Gonzalez and multimedia artist Andrew Pitrone, this is a happily anachronistic homemade/handmade video, put together over several months at Lolipop’s studio with every single shot a separate photo. It looks like an old school Terry Gilliam cut-up made from equal parts Yellow Submarine and Sgt. Pepper’s, and it captures the spirit of the song perfectly. Says Ignacio: “The song ‘The Great Unknown’ is about life on the road, as a touring artist, and all of the ups-and-downs that come with the job. This video was made to encompass that sense of constant wonder and never knowing what’s just around the corner in the next town.”

Mystic Braves’ The Great Unknown is available on LP/CD/CS from Lolipop here, and they’re heading out on tour at the end of May—full dates below!
