Video: Roommate - 'August Song'

By Sasha Geffen

Like a children's book set alight with synesthetic sparks, the newest video from Chicago's own Roommate glides us through a maze of kaleidoscope collages. Our protagonist, a flickering cat, swims through tactile, quilted scenery on a hypnotic journey set to the heatsick dissonance of "August Song." The track comes off Roommate's latest LP Guilty Rainbow, a thick psychedelic matrix of a record with a subtly tortured edge. String it between your ears this summer--and be sure to take in the perfectly illustrated video below.
