PREMIERE: Bathe Your Brain in Pink Sludge in the Grooms Video for "Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair"

Here's a new video for "Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair" by NYC art-pop trio Grooms.
August 19, 2015, 1:37pm

Brooklyn art-pop trio Grooms have unleashed a sea of Pepto-Bismol in the trippy video for the title track off their album Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair, released from Western Vinyl earlier this year. Guitarist and vocalist Travis Johnson layered up the track with synth-splashed melodies and indie rock-lite 6-string catchiness.

In Grooms’ delightfully trippy video for the album’s title track, the trio mirrors its luminous aesthetic with an epically colorful dip into a bathtub of pink sludge. Since we don’t have a clue of what’s happening here, we dialed up Cora Foxx, the vid’s director, to fill us in.

“In the video for 'Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair' for Grooms, my intention was to tell a story with objects, where the viewers imagination would piece together a narrative through the emergence of various objects from a thick pink liquid. It is a melodrama told through abstraction, filtered through the viewers own sense of meaning, symbolism, values, and biases.”

On that note, take a dip in the melodious pink sludgery of “Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair” and check out Grooms on tour with their buds, A Place To Bury Strangers. Grooms tour dates are listed below.
