Hallucinate with Pleasures in their new video for "Gemini Twin"

Get off my wave

Pleasures is back to prove why they're probably the most psychedelic rock band in the Bay area.

In August, CL described their new LP, Fucked Up Dreams Come True, as an art piece that "plays like a variety hour where the devil gets a hold of an MPC while every demented soul he’s been left with in hell fills the figurative studio with strange howling noises all running through a pedal board only an octopod could navigate."


Today, we get a visual thanks to a new video for "Gemini Twin," where director Robert Jensen helps frontwoman Katherine Kelly & co. execute a stop motion clip where mutated dolls crawl and drive around while technicolor visuals and demonic hallucinations fade in and out in the background (via Impose).

It feels like an inebriated fever dream, really, and you can experience with no immediate side effects above. Listen to the whole of Fucked Up Dreams Come True below and buy it via Bandcamp.

The band's next show is on October 20 at The Bends in St. Petersburg, Florida as a part of the "You're Gonna Get It" film premiere. More information on the show is available on CL's events page.
