Video: Trip out on 'Acid' with YAWN

By Frank Krolicki

I've seen a lot of trippy music videos lately. Trippy music videos seem to be the thing to do. I really think this new one by Chicago's own indie psych-pop quartet YAWN takes the cake, though. The clip--of the appropriately titled "Acid" off the band's soon-to-come debut full-length Open Season--is a strange yet enjoyable journey into nothingness from start to finish, including a bedazzled head floating in space, alien dudes, sea creatures and a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes. I don't think there's any point to it all, but maybe the point is that there's no point. Heavy, man. See for yourself below and check out YAWN live when they play Metro on September 30th.

  1. YAWN have to be one of my bands of 2011 - there's not enough psychedelic rock out there!
