Seriously psychedelic and utterly otherworldly, Oh Sees' new video "Drowned Beast," created by animator and director Dr. D Foothead, is a visually stunning cosmic story; something like what you'd imagine is going on inside John Dwyer's head as he pens his songs.
"Drowned Beast" features the arrival of a mysterious entity to a peaceful farming planet. What ensues after initial interaction with the glob-like monster resembles a siren calling all souls until each and everyone is lured into her enchanting yet toxic embrace. "I wrote this song mostly in the studio and it was, in my mind, about the insatiable hunger of mankind, but sort of bent in this weird fantastical way," says John Dwyer. "I always love working with Dr Foothead because his take is always coming from some other world, as is evident in this far out animation."
The song comes from Orc, Oh Sees' acclaimed new album from earlier this year, out now on Castle Face. Watch the new video below.
