Quantcast
Elysian Fields' New Video Will Quench Your Thirst for Psychedelia and Cats

This dreamy tune encourages you to close your eyes, suspend your undying love for black metal or horrorcore, and ride the magic carpet groove train all the way back to the station, man.

We all know that one guy who was really into Terence McKenna in high school and would show up to Chemistry with a bag of peyote buttons and talk about quantum mechanics and New Age spiritualism while drawing occult symbols in his Moleskine. This video, which was directed by Steven Mertens, is what happens when that guy grows up and gets really good at Adobe After Effects.

"Channeling," the song behind the video, is performed by art rock mainstays ​Elysian Fields. They've been in the game since 1995 and have produced a pretty remarkable body of work, including collaborations with the likes of John Zorn, Steve Albini, and Jeff Buckley. This dreamy tune encourages you to close your eyes, suspend your undying love for black metal or horrorcore, and ride the magic carpet groove train all the way back to the station, man. If the station is even there. Whoa.
