Ride along with the 60s high of neo-pop surf dreams.
Michael Rault is the nostalgic psychedelia of the late-60s LSD era of the Beatles “Strawberry Fields," swirled into neo-pop of Foxygen’s west coast beach waves. Named after the lead singer, the band debuts the video for their newest single, "Lost Something". As the fuzzed-out guitar presses on the pictures of paint splatters etched on Michael’s easy-going head bob, it reminds of a humid summer road trip across the praries—which they have currently made their home in a move from Edmonton to Toronto. Whether the static film reel presents a dark nightmare or having an ethereal ephiphany, they bring a bubbly summer coasting song of riding with the windows down, high-fives and good times.
