Boston, Massachusetts-based dystopian electronic dance magicians Reuben Bettsak, and Bo Barringer, AKA Ex-Hyena, follow up the band’s recently released sophomore album, “Moon Reflections“, in collaboration with independent labels Hush Club Ltd. (Digital) and Brutal Resonance Records (Tape), with a stirring video premiere, directed by Reuben Bettsak & Alfonso Esquivel, featuring the bewitching Kaarin Zoe Lee, for the trippy psychological track “Sight Unseen“.
Twinkling arpeggiated electronic spirals swirl and compute into bewitching sprawling forms over sentient sizzling sensations, sluggish buzzing bass smudges and sinuous warm vibrations, along with soft staggering beats, coalescing in a heady, disassociative ambiance around evocative vocal layerings, casting depth-defying shivers, ghostly distortions, and harsh shaming whispers into intoxicating sheets of pinpoint chimes and sinister prowling melodies, to manifest the alternate lyrical dimension of translucent emotion, energy, and insight from a sleepless night of surreal visions.
The accompanying video, directed by Reuben Bettsak & Alfonso Esquivel, transports the viewer into the disorienting mental state of the lyrical spell using alternating red and blue perceptions of the hypnotic eye streams to stir the subconscious spirits of fear and desire. Insomniatic brain waves transform a lonely bedroom scene into a cybernetic maze of distorted electromagnetic frequencies to open forbidden doorways into a parallel realm of hidden memories.
