Happy New Year and welcome to the first Video Clip of The Week for 2018, which we are getting back to with great enthusiasm after taking an extended break over the Christmas holidays. I hope everybody had a good one. This week’s Sunday Jam comes from LA progressive rockers Perfect Beings, who offer up a curious but engaging animated clip for their song, “Mysteries, Not Answers.”
Fitting snugly in the cerebral twilight time between consciousness and sleep, “Mysteries Not Answers” is a soothing, minor chord lullaby that recalls Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson at his best. Visually, the story of an anthropomorphic Fox who falls asleep in front of the TV and dreams himself into a state of suburban fugue strikes the perfect balance of amusement and disquiet.
“Mysteries, Not Answers” can be found on Perfect Beings’ third full length release, Vier — a double album which is split into 4 distinct compositions (so prog), due out via Inside Out/Sony Music on January 19th, 2018. Enjoy!
