Wasilla, Alaska’s own Portugal. The Man have some wholesome, child-like fun in the video for “Atomic Man”, off their forthcoming album, Evil Friends. Director David Vincent Wolf uses some time delays and editing tricks to create trippy visuals (e.g. the band’s eyes sliding down their faces, their heads turning into amorphous blobs.) Still, it’s the mature, high-art version of when most of us learned to distort our voices by speaking into a fan, except this one breaks psyches and not tongues.
The band’s Danger Mouse-produced seventh album, Evil Friends, is due out June 4th via Atlantic Records. Also check out much more scandalous video for video for “Purple Yellow Red and Blue”.
